The illustration highlights the advancement of Stone Age cutting tools by contrasting one made 800,000 years ago with its predecessor dating back 1.4 million years.
It is clear that the earlier tool (tool A) looked very simple while the later one (tool B) was more complex and finely-produced. Major differences can be found in their shapes, edges and tips.
Specifically, tool A was characterised by rough surfaces and edges. It was around 7 cm in length and had a small tip which looked sharp when viewed from the back but fairly blunt if viewed from the front. Overall, the tool had no particular shape and retained all characteristics of natural rocks, indicating basic tool making techniques of that period.
Tool B, however, showcased more advanced and elaborate manufacturing process. It was relatively larger in size and had skilfully sharpened tip and edges. Particularly, it was shaped like a pointed leaf with perfect symmetry and a round bottom to comfortably fit the user’s hand. These desired features were obviously the outcomes of delicate workmanship that had allowed prehistoric humans to get a better grip of gathering, butchering and woodworking.
