An edge shave with a rounded wooden handle attached to a slender shank which has a groove in the middle of the upper side and a two pronged cutting edge. There is a brass band at the end of the handle where it is attached to the shank. "J DIXON 1" is stamped into 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.
