Flake which may have been used as a knife or a point. Grey and brown stone. During the process of making a stone tool flakes are detached from a stone core. This flake may have been produced with the intention of making it into a specific type of tool. A blade or point would have been created through finer chipping and flaking called retouching. The flake could also have been coincidentally created during the process of making another stone tool. This type of tool has definate similarities to examples identified as of the Paleolithic period although their production is linked to the flaked stone tool technology which may have continued even into the Yayoi period.
