This metal object has a thin conical handle and flat blade-like top. The handle is decorated with a very worn spiral design. The blade-like end is also too worn to see the actual shape. The bottom end has a curvature to it and a barb on the opposite side. The top has an irregular edge and three holes. An incised line follows the unsharpened profile.
