This paper introduces us to one of the most important lithic artifacts used by the chalchihuiteños in Guadiana valley, the spike scraper. This tool could be the only representative lithic piece for this cultural group on the area. This work presents an analysis and a typology, an approach about the source of the materials used to its elaboration and the possible uses of this tool for the prehispanic inhabitants in Durango.
