    Captain red-beard thanks for contributing! Them are some good examples.

    I think that last one you posted had likely become a drill. Is the other end knocked around like a typical thumb scraper bit too?

    I think the other halfted one looks like it could simply be be an exhausted scraper. But it also looks like it may have a spoke shave worked into the bit on one side.

    Feel I should add these to the thread as well. These are 2 points made out of flakes, they are super thin and still razor sharp. I Still pick up and keep most bigger flakes/debitage and do find a lot of them have some type of secondary knapping done to them once they are cleaned up a little.

    This one is 29mm long

    The first pic in your last thread now has me leaning to that being a knife. The narrow portion was possibly halted into bone or wood handle.

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

    I'm surprised how much of the same or similar material you have on your sites. Black it a rare color for artifacts up here.
