Lower Angustidens tooth

What a little killer! It looks like an auriculatus, but it came from the Chandler Bridge so it is an angustidens. Every serration is intact and the cusps are deadly little buds growing out of the edge. The tip is extremely sharp. I know the blade would cut through my hand like butter. The root is fantastic with barely even a hint of wear. Its got these giant, bulbous, rounded root lobes that really look like those on an auriculatus. The only flaw is the wear on the bourlette.
