Flint awl on a secondary flake that has one arise on the dorsal and a large bulb-of-percussion on the ventral. Retouch is present on the left which is short and semi-abrupt creating a concave scraper, flakes have been removed from the right sides but these appear to be edge damage rather than retouch. Further retouch is found on the forward edge consisting of low, inverse flake removal creating a awl point. Very dark grey flint with lighter grey patches, 30% cortex to the rear.
