the raised edge of the wire tray in which handmade paper is made, which stops the pulp from running over the edge of the tray

the width of a machine which makes paper, hence the width of a piece of paper as it is made

COMMENT: Handmade paper always has a deckle edge, and this has to be cut off before printing, so that the lay of the paper is the same from sheet to sheet. An artificial deckle edge is given to machine-made writing paper to make it more attractive.
