A screw crease with a rounded wooden handle attached to a shank which ends in a shield shaped head which is split in two. A thumbscrew is threaded through the shank. There is a small leather strap at the end of the handle. " J E BUTLER LD. " is stamped into the top of the shank.
This screw 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.
