    I would rather see an authentic broken scraper posted than a G-10 Artifake!

    The indention does have pecking marks but the flat sides have lines probably caused by being pushed by glaciers. It does feel right when holding it.

    Here’s an axe head I found a few years ago .... it has a similar rounded profile / shape to it but there is still several key features that a usable axe needs like a groove for hafting a handle and a decent bit end that would cut well this one weighs 8lbs so imagine it needed a long handle to properly use

    That is an artifact, it is a 3/4 groove ax.

    It might work for fleshing animal skins.

    That's what I was thinking. Maybe I was wrong by using the term axe.
