Although the groove is far deeper than any I’ve seen from my own region, I have no real problem understanding why someone would see it as a adze with very worn down bit. But I needed to see the angles shown in the 3D model, that certainly helped.

    Edit: just noticed the cavity at the “poll” end. That’s unique, and if an adze, must have involved a socket and groove hafting.
    For myself I wasn't talking about the 3D picture in opening post as a possible fossil, I was talking about the one below, the original picture (3D) is no doubt an adze in my opinion.
