It’s a knife still because even if it was found in the fire kit he could use it to shave the tinder

Lovely work. Also the attached handle proving it's not an arrow is interesting - I wonder how many large arrowheads are classed that way because of having no handle?

Everyone knows Ootzi was a magic leprechaun that ran around with bigfoot and the tooth fairy....geeze people cut the man some slack, do you think making this stuff is easy?

could you use a deer leg bone instead of an antler
Max Schaefer (1 month ago)
What people don’t realize is that this knife is almost long for a primitive knife. Flint is fragile like glass and could break more easily the longer it was. Most were only 2-3 inches long

My theory is it was probably illegal to carry and sell pointed edged knifes back in Ötzis days, much like in Britain today, hence the tip was removed.

This small knife is like the derringer of blades. Easily concealable but can do serious damage!

Congratulations my friend. you should be an historian and work on scientific excavations, because you have the way of dealing with, and understanding the primitive technologies. Not being restricted to theoretical knowledge. Congratulations, and best regards from Brazil.

Earlier you had said that YouTube was restricting knives and such. I am glad to see this one was not restricted but how do you suppose that came to be?

jeepin johnny (3 months ago)

James Passmore (4 months ago)
It's not a dagger, it's a knife. I believe he would have used it mostly for skinning and butchering animals.

Ötzi the iceman was actually cursed. The scientists who discovered him actually passed in strange ways after they found him.
timi天美 (6 months ago)
you didn't mention people need to use sorcery to keep the knot tie enough to hold the sharp stone and break the stone with woods
timi天美 (6 months ago)
and the stone is so easy to break by magic not your bear hand is strength
