Credit line
This double crease was used by Robert Graham, who owned a boot repair and saddlery shop in Queen Street, Waitara. Leatherworkers use a wide variety of crease tools, but they all have the basic job of imprinting lines on the surface of leather. This can be done for decoration or as a guide for sewing. A double crease produces two parallel lines at a fixed distance apart, and can be used for all kinds of decoration, including cross hatching.
