Graver with an iron blade set into a handle made from antler. The blade has been sharpened along one edge and at the tip. The handle consists of a piece of antler that has been split along the long axis. The resulting two pieces have matching grooves at one end, and were rejoined after the blade was inserted. Part of the handle has been cut away, leaving a slight step at each end. A cord made of braided sinew is wrapped around the handle below the step at the end holding the blade.
