I can say that all material comes from North Antrim and North Londonderry.This Backed blade is made on a sub-rectangular flake with one long side very sharp and the other cortical side almost flat and box-likeA broad flake with an offset keel, it retains its bulb of percussion and striking platformBacked blades were developed so that pressure could be put on the flat side to improve the cutting of the edge - we still use backed blades today - every kitchen knife has a sharp edge and a blunt oneDimensions 50mm by 40mm by 15mm (maximum thickness) Please note that my entire private collection was examined, recorded and evaluated by staff of the Ulster Museum, Belfast in the 1990s Condition: Excellent
