Seller: muddy-feet (2,292) 100%, Location: Kent, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 112212064606 For sale; from my personal fieldwalking collection, is this Early Upper Palaeolithic, Gravettian tanged leaf point/knife This wonderful tool has been made on a leaf shaped flint flake and is similar in style to that of a Font Robert point. Dispite having a tanged proximal end, it would appear that the tool was used as a knife rather than a projectile. Possibly hafted on a handle and used as a knife, or even used without being hafted. The cortical depression seen on the dorsal side (photo 1) is perfect for the thumb placement.The tool also has a curving back with a flat area for the index finger. The blade edge has very fine bifacial retouches along it’s entire edge. A rare and collectable tool that is in museum grade condition. Found Northfleet, Kent. C 28,000 years BP Length: 101 mm Width: 40 mm Thickness: 12 mm Weight: 46.9 grams As I have personally found each artefact in my collection, I am able to offer a money back guarantee of authenticity. The area where this tool was found has been subjected to a great deal of construction activity, including road and railway building, it is likely that it was disturbed through these activities. _gsrx_vers_779 (GS 7.0.4 (779)) Condition: A genuine artefact with provenance.
