An edge shave with a rounded wooden handle attached to a slender shank which has a groove in the middle of the upper side. " J DIXON & SONS/ 2 " is stamped into the shank. A brass band runs around the handle where it joins onto the shank.
This edge shave was used by Robert Graham, who owned a boot repair and saddlery shop in Queen Street, Waitara. Edge shaves are designed to shave and smooth edges on leather.
