Only One Available: This is a very nice Archaic Native American Scraper. Up to 8,000 years old! Fits nicely in the hand. 

Scrapers were often used to soften hides or to clean meat off of the hides, in addition to being used for wood work. As the term scraper suggests, this tool was scraped at the hide or wood in order to reach the end goal. Scrapers were also made in order to skin animals.

Scrapers are typically formed by chipping the end of a flake of stone in order to create one sharp side and to keep the rest of the sides dull to facilitate grasping it. Most scrapers are either circle or blade-like in shape. The working edges of scrapers tend to be convex, and many have trimmed and dulled lateral edges to facilitate hafting.

There are no condition issues with this artifact, it is perfect for display! A great addition to any artifact collection. 2.65" long.
