Scrapers made from a variety of materials were popular tools for Amerindian communities. Scrapers are typically formed by chipping the end of a flake of stone in order to create one sharp side and to keep the rest of the sides dull to facilitate grasping it. Most scrapers are either circle or blade-like in shape. The working edges of scrapers tend to be convex, and many have trimmed and dulled lateral edges to facilitate hafting.
In Barbados, as the island is made of limestone and not volcanic rock, scrapers were usually made of conch shell. So it is likely that this stone scraper originated from another Caribbean country.
