The denominations given over time to chipped stone tools have often been evoked by their alleged function or sometimes by their shape.

As a matter of fact, we don't evermore know precisely the real use they were intended.

The studies carried out suggest that they were used to cut the meat, clean the skins, and work the wood. Microwear analyzes on these ancient tools have confirmed these different uses, but often contradict the names adopted by archaeologists over time.

The most frequently highlighted actions are the decortication, planing, smoothing and shaping of wood and the cutting of the meat, the bones scrub and the scrapping of the animal skins .
