Stone Tool Analysis: 'Rolled' scar margin

Removal of a bend-initiated flake results in broad and slightly U-shaped notch in the platform edge.  The notch will have a gently curved ‘rolled’ profile corresponding to the curved platform profile of the flake removed from it.  Since a bend-initiated flake lacks a Hertzian cone, an eraillure will never be found adhering to a bend-initiated flake scar.
