Title
Obsidian blade with tang (knife).
Description
An obsidian flake has been separated or knocked off a larger gore. The flake was thinned and shaped by having small pieces pushed off the sides to form a blade with a tang. Eventually the edges had small chips pushed off both sides to reproduce a sharp edge. The blade was embedded or haft into the handle of a knife.
