Abstract

The subject of Plate xxxvi. has been figured as a "Shark's tooth flaying knife." Edge-Partington gives an illustration of one, with this explanation, but without locality. His figure represents a wooden implement fourteen and a quarter inches long, oval in section, bearing five shark's teeth, set in gum-cement, along one edge at the distal end. The proximal end is wrapped with cord, doubtless, also, gum-cement fastened.
