This tool is an Olduwan core made from a basalt cobble. It is a  Karari Industry tool, which is a variant of the Olduwan.

The Karari Industry, is characterized by these simple cores and flakes. Sharp cutting edges are produced with little effort through simple percussion of a core against an anvil. The variability of the tools of this age between sites is dependent on the quality of the raw material.
