This antler pick was found on the Auvernier site on
Lake Neuchatel in western Switzerland. Mathiassen describes a
similar example from Denmark as a pick axe. The beam forms the
handle and a tine the point.
Two of the tines and the base of the
antler were removed by grooving and snapping.
This example is fairly large.
It measures 18 3/4 inches (47.6 cm)
