Tool mark examinations hold an eminent place in criminal routine work. Since the fundamental treatises of Kockel [1–3], the examination technique has continually been improved and extended to numerous methods of criminal investigation. Thomas  has given a fascinating survey of this development and has listed a series of notable authors. Further important publications are those by Mezger et al , Burd and Kirk , Burd and Greene [7–9], Flynn , Biasotti , Burd and Gilmore , Rees and Cundy , and, in German publications, by Mezger et al [14,15], Nippe , Specht [17,18], Bessemans , Angermayer et al , Winkler , Katona , and Hantsche and Schwarz .
