Product Description

NEOLITHIC FINGER HELD WORK TOOLS, SAHARA DESERT
THESE ARE THREE FINGER TOOLS IN DISPLAY. THEY AVERAGE 1.00" LONG. ALL ARE GRADE 10 PERFECTION! THIS ALL GLASS DISPLAY IS 5" TALL AND 10" WIDE. ONE OF THE FEATURED ARROWS IS A FINGER HELD SERRATED BLADE, THE CENTER ONE IS CALLED A DALTON OR EGYPTION TYPE WITH SEDRRATED BLADES. THE THIRD ONE IS A UNIQUE ECCENTRIC ARROW.

BELOW IS THE STORY ON WORK TOOLS THAT CAN BE HELPFUL TO YOU IN THEIR UNDERSTANDING.

WHEN WE "SEE" AN ANCIENT STONE SHAPED BY ANCIENT PEOPLE WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT BY ALL WE CAN READ AND STUDY THAT THOSE SHAPED STONES CALLED ARROWS, SPEARS AND BLADES WERE USED AS ARROW TIPS FOR A BOW, CLOSE IN FIGHTING, HUNTING AND LANCES. THIS IS WHAT WE "SEE" AND READ TO BE TRUE. THIS IS CORRECT TO A SMALL DEGREE BUT A MUCH LARGER AND MORE IMPORTANT TECHNIQUE IS TO "FEEL" THE USE. WE HAVEN'T BEEN TAUGHT TO "FEEL THE STONE." THE SHOCKING REALITY WHEN YOU "FEEL" THE STONE IS THAT A MAJORITY OF ARROWS, SPEARS AND BLADES ARE WORK TOOLS FOR ALL-TOGETHER A DIFFERENT USE FOR EVERYDAY LIVING DURING THOSE ANCIENT TIMES. WHEN YOU "FEEL" THE USE YOUR MIND CAN "SEE" THEY INDEED ARE HAND HELD AND FINGER TOOLS REGARDLESS OF THEIR BEAUTY OR LACK OF BEAUTY, THEIR ATTRACTIVE SHAPE OR JUST A "PLAIN JANE" MAYBE EVEN AN ODD SHAPE.

MATTER OF FACT, IF IT IS SHAPED AND HAS A TIP ON ONE END, A CUTTING EDGE ALONG THE SIDES OR A TAPERED END IT IS MORE THEN LIKELY A HAND OR FINGER TOOL. MATTER OF FACT I HAVE JUST DESCRIBED ALMOST ALL YOUR COMPLETE COLLECTION. YOU CAN RUN YOUR FINGERS ALONG THE FLAT PART OF THE STONE AND "FEEL" WHERE THE FINGER PRESSED AGAINST THE STONE DURING USE. STROKE YOUR ARTIFACT AS YOU WOULD YOUR FAVORITE PET AND YOU WILL "FEEL" IT TALK TO YOU.

I CONSIDER THE LEADING AUTHORITY ON WORK TOOLS TO BE LENNY MURPHY FROM THE STATE OF MAINE. HE HAS BEEN STUDYING THE "FEEL" OF ARROWS FOR MANY YEARS. HE HAS A MUSEUM FOR STUDY OF ARROW USE. HE WILL BE PUBLISHING A BOOK IN THE NEXT YEAR THAT WILL SHED NEW LIGHT ON THE WAY WE EVALUATE ANCIENT STONES. THE NAME OF HIS BOOK WILL BE "READING INDIAN ARTIFACTS OF STONE." YOU HAVE PLENTY OF GUIDES ON CLASSIFICATION BY LOOKS, TYPES, AGE AND VALUE. SOON WE WILL HAVE A GUIDE THAT WILL ADD THE "FEEL OF THE STONE." INDEED, THEN YOU WILL HAVE A TRUE PICTURE OF THE USE OF ANCIENT STONES.

HERE ARE SOME COMMENTS FROM LENNY HIMSELF AFTER MANY YEARS OF "FEELING THE STONE."  "WHEN EVALUATING ARROWHEAD TYPE ARTIFACTS, INCLUDING TRIANGULAR TYPES, LOOK FOR THE HIGH POINTS THAT HAVE BEEN CHIPPED OR CUT-DOWN AND/OR GROUND DOWN TO FIT THE FINGERS! LOOK FOR THESE CLUES IN THE CENTER AREA AND AT THE BASE OF THE TOOLS BECAUSE MOST OF THEM WERE WORKED OUT TO FIT THE FINGERS AND TO BE USED IN BOTH DIRECTIONS! SOMETIMES THE SIDES WHERE USED TO CUT AS WELL. MANY TIMES WHEN THEY SWITCHED FROM ONE END TO THE OTHER THEY SWITCHED SIDES AS WELL. MOST BLADES WERE BROKEN WHERE THEY WERE PRESSURED BY THE FINGERS, AND NOT FROM BEING HAFTED! NO ONE HAS SEEN CUT MARKS ON THE NOTCHED TYPE POINTS BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT CUT OFF OF THE HALF WHEN THEY WERE WORN OUT OR BROKEN! THE OTHER REASON WHY THE BLADES WERE BRAKING MOSTLY NEAR THE MIDDLE, AND NOT NEAR THE AREA THOUGHT TO BE HAFTED, IS BECAUSE THEY, MOSTLY WOMEN, WERE WORKING THE TOOLS THINNER NEAR THE CENTER OF THE SHAPED STONE TO FIT THE FINGERS, ONLY WHEN THE STONE WAS LARGER DID THEY SOMETIMES WRAP THEIR FINGER AROUND THE TOOL!

THE FACT THAT THE WOMEN DID MOST OF THE WORK, AND NEEDED TO MAKE THEIR TOOLS TO DO THEIR WORK, HELPED SHOW ME THE WAY TO UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE TODAY GO TO WHERE WOMEN WERE WORKING TO FIND MANY ARTIFACTS, THE FIELDS! DID YOU NOTICE THE WORD "WOMEN" IN THIS DISCUSSION? WOULD IT SURPRISE YOU TO KNOW WOMAN MADE MANY OF WHAT WE CALL ARROWHEADS?

LENNY GAVE ME PERMISSION TO INVITE THE BUYER TO HIS PRIVATE MUSEUM BY APPOINTMENT AND BRING YOUR ARTIFACTS FOR EVALUATION! YOU ARE INVITED TO CALL HIM BY PHONE SO HE CAN EXPLAIN IN GREATER DETAIL HIS THEORIES.
