Pointed (heavy butted) flint hand axe


SKU: PT0022. Category: . Tags: , .

Product Description

The pointed or heavy butted flint hand axe was the less efficient brother of the Ovate flint hand axe; slow and clumsy to use, this was a design made from small cobbles of flint. The best of a bad material really, but still did the job for hundreds of thousands of years!
