Denticulate tool

Denticulate tool

In archeology, a denticulate tool is a stone tool that displays one or more edges that are worked into multiply notched shapes, much like the toothed edge of a saw. Indeed, these tools might have been used as saws, more likely for meat processing than for wood. It is possible, however, that some or all of these notches were used for smoothing wooden shafts or for similar purposes.
