A lot can change in 2.5 million years. Take knives, for example. Our early ancestors crafted knives by chipping and fl aking o_ bits of rock to make an edge. On occasion, they attached those tools to a handle.

Naturally, man eventually discovered new and better materials for knives. As the technology improved, knives improved. Stone became copper. Then bronze, an alloy of copper and tin. Iron moved into the line-up. Then steel, an alloy of iron and carbon. In some parts of the world, exotic materials, like meteorite, even got pounded into blades.
