The shaft tapers from its attachment point to the dull point. The point may have been broken. The head end is bent in a smooth curve to a 75 degree angle from the length of the shaft. The shaft is pierced by a bore along the straight shaft beginning 10.7 cm. from the dull end. The shaft swells to either side of the bore.
