This stone has a chipped edge for cutting that fits into the palm. Warriors carry stone handaxes for sentimental or superstitious reasons even after flint-edge knives and steel daggers have made them obsolete. Upon passing an initiation into adulthood, a young man receives a stone handaxe from a village elder. The ceremonial first cut after a kill is usually done with a stone handaxe to emphasize the hunter's bonds to community and nature.
