A double crease with a rounded wooden handle attached to a straight shank which ends in an axe shaped head with a blunt edge. " 2 " is stamped into the head. " C.CREATREX & SON " is stamped on the shank. A small leather strap is attached to the end of the handle.
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.
