c.8000-4000 B.C. An excellent quality Mesolithic - Early Neolithic flint hand saw produced by the Caspian Culture of Algeria, North Africa with very nicely worked serrated blade edge, from an old West Country collection. Fashioned from a pleasant toffee coloured flint flake struck from the top of a large pebble. Flat; smooth underside with original pebble cortex on top surface, then meticulously worked and pressure flaked along one side to form a well defined and still sharp denticulated (serrated) functional saw blade edge. This tool would have been gripped in the hand and most probably used for sawing through tougher plant stems, cordage or even animal sinew. A well made and very functional Stone Age tool, totally intact and in excellent condition with a very good saw blade edge, nice surface ageing and shiny patination, a nice item, approx. 62mm long x 28mm wide.
