Traditional Lignum Lead Former Dressing Stick
A vintage roofers' or plumbers' lead former dressing stick.
These tools were typically made in boxwood, hornbeam or lignum vitae.
We believe this one is of lignum vitae due to both its appearance and weight of 1lb 71/4oz (654g)
Raised handle to protect the knuckles.
Wonderful grain and colour.
14 inches overall length.
