The tapered blade has conforming line decoration and is also stamped both sides J. Nicholson. The whole has an excellent colour and patination. Seam rubbers were made in various woods and sometimes whale bone or walrus ivory and were used by sailors and sail makers for smoothing the seams in canvas, flattening the double line of waxed stitches into the canvas.
