A single crease with a rounded wooden handle attached to a gently curved shank which ends in a flat, shield shaped head with a blunt edge. " J DIXON & SONS " is stamped into the shank and a series of lines are scratched into one side of the brass band where the shank joins the handle.
This single 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.
