CANAANEAN BLADE REAPING KNIFE
This Canaanean blade from Tell Halif is described as a reaping knife, as opposed to a sickle blade segment. Sickle blade segments were made by snapping short segments from longer blades. Reaping knives are intact blades and were used without modification. It's believed that sickle blade segments were hafted onto a curved crescent shaped handle and reaping knives were hafted in a straight line. This reaping knife has a glossy silica coating on its serrated cutting edge indicating it was probably used to harvest some type of plant materials.
