Which as expected says not one word about this being a "pesesh-kef" (pesesh-kef knife), an object that dates back to at least the 1st Dynasty. One of the more famous examples inscribed with the name of Khufu:


They are all this way designed to perform with a specific purpose of cutting, made of stone, which obviously the object found in G1 was not.

Compare:


This is clearly a hook of some sort and not a dual edged cutting blade which is exactly what the pesesh-kef knife is.

Which also says nothing about the object found in G1 as being a pesesh-kef and makes no mention of it at all.

Once again you use sources to support a claim with no explanation as to how they do and when one actually reads them strangely they do not. So how about try that again.
