Modern Stone Age Tools

1350086987-0

From Neatorama: "Combining the best of both ages, Ami Drach and Dov Ganchrow gave stone knives and axes modern plastic handles.

Their work is the result of an experimental exploration of the realm of tool making, where stone and flint tools were the means of  our ancestors' survival for over a million years. They magnify our bodily (teeth, fingernails, fists, etc.) capabilities of cutting and chopping, sawing and pounding.

Using three-dimensional scanning and printing, ancient artifacts are digitally outfitted with  custom-designed handles encapsulating the rugged forms in perfectly enclosed cases.
