GERZEAN FLAKE KNIFE
This is another of what appears to be a Gerzean-like knife. It was not made from a bifacially percussion flaked preform but instead it was made on a large flake. This knife was shaped into the form of a Gerzean knife by grinding and by pressure trimming the edge. The arrows point to the area were it was ground into shape. The opposite side still retains most of the original outer cortex of the stone. There is some short parallel pressure flaking along the edge of the base. This knife measures 6 5/16 inches (16 cm) long and 2 1/16 inches (5.2 cm) wide.
