c.3000-2500 B.C. A large and excellent, pressure flaked Plano-Convex Slug Knife found near Canterbury, Kent and from a Cornish private collection. Uni-face and fashioned from a most attractive mottled, light & dark grey flint, copiusly worked and pressure flaked all over the top surface with blade edges still sharp and almost denticulated in areas. Unusually there is purposefully made deep notch at one end of the knife which has been worked internally and possesses a short stubby but sharp, backswept barb at one end, obviously made for a very specific task, possibly drawn towards the user to cut though animal skin in a similar way to a carpet fitters knife cuts through carpet. Very nicely aged and patinated, totally intact and in lovely condition. A much larger than usual and excellent example of its type, 76mm long x 22mm wide.
