The Handy Man species used sharp edges of rock to cut objects unable to be ripped with hands. They also used bones for digging sticks. I think the Handy Man hominids were named Handy Man because they made hand made tools to help them cope with everyday life. They used the stone to cut meat from dead animals. They ate marrow from inside bones. The sharp stones were used to smash bones to get the marrow. Sometimes the Handy Man even made simple traps to catch small animals to eat.
