c.3000 B.C. A good Neolithic flint fabricator tool found many years back in the Avon Valley near Fordingbridge, Hampshire. It is expertly fashioned from an attractive dappled grey flint. In fairly typical form with a flat underside and the pronounced medial ridge on the main upper surface, well worked and slightly beaked functional tip. Fabricators were the proverbial Neolithic "Swiss Army knife" and used predominantly for re-working and honing of other smaller flint tools and projectiles to prolong their use, these tools could also be used for boring and scraping as well. Intact and in very nice condition with a pleasant patination together with iron oxide highlights to the percussion ridges further enhancing the piece, 74mm long x 18mm wide x 15mm at thickest.
