This stone tool is an end scraper widely used during the late Paleolithic Period. The tool was made by chipping the end of a flake of obsidian to form a rounded end on a blade. The blade of this end scraper is comparatively more obtuse than that of the other type of scrapers, suggesting that it was used for processing animal hides.
