This is a superb pair of large core-struck blades.  Each is a UNIFACIAL FLAKE KNIFE.  One is a standard blade and one has been flaked to a point on the distal end.  Flake knives this size are uncommon and often broken but these EXCEPTIONAL examples are UNBROKEN and AS MADE!  Both examples show bifacial flaking with prehistoric sharpening on the underside.  You could not ask for more impressive and top grade specimens of these two FLAKE KNIFE technolgies of this African Neolithic!  BOTH are of the highest degree workmanship and are complete and intact.  Both knifes are made of colorful chert and like all AUTHENTIC specimens, show original mineral sediments still impacted in the hinge fractures and micro-crevices.  NO RESTORATION, NO REPAIR.
