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 with some original pebble cortex remaining on parts of the upper surface. 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 but this time unusually featuring a flattened blade on the butt end of the fabricator. Fabricators were the proverbial Neolithic "Swiss Army knife" and used predominantly for re-working and honing of other smaller flint tools and projectiles to prologue their use, these tools could also be used for boring and scraping as well. A couple of very minor edge knocks, not detracting otherwise intact and in very good condition with nice shiny surface patination, 87mm long x 27mm wide x 18mm at thickest.
