They look to be making vessels with it to me and most anyone else who has ever seen it.

True, but I assume it lies within an OK context that surrounds it. There are also another example of this same tool in a notable 6th Dynasty mastaba.

As it should be to anyone which only goes to show Jaudrigyptian is not being honest and just distorting what was said as an excuse to feign butthurt to attack me because I do not agree with them apparently.

That's why I posted at the end the advancements in stoneware manufacture coincides with the appearance of monumental noble tombs, boat burying, et al and closed with a picture of the serekh which from previous discussions I argue is Mesopotamian derived. So where did the enhanced stoneworking ability possibly have come from...?
