Nordic Mesolithic symmetrical beige flint axe
NORDIC MESOLITHIC SYMMETRICAL BEIGE FLINT AXE

Symmetrical to both the horizontal and vertical axis, the cutting edge lies in the plane of the side edges. Final pressure flake trimming of side edges made from the same side. Broad sharp cutting edge is the intersection of two cleanly flaked scars traversing the width of the axe. A very large, beautiful example of its type in perfect condition.
