A pebble tool worked on both faces and often irregular in shape. The cutting edge can go around periphery or there may be a break; it can be plano-convex in section. It differs from biface in that it is often not axially symmetric and in the undifferentiated position of the cutting edge. It is characteristic of the Oldowan and Acheulian complexes.
