A Henderson County, Kentucky creek find, this massive Hopewell was found by a young kid riding his bicycle down onto a gravel bar in a creek. To him, selling the Hopewell represented a new pair of shoes for school that fall.. Sometimes an "arrowhead" will have a modern story that's as interesting as the ancient users-story. The point is slightly over 3&15/16" by 2&1/8", and due to the center-of-the-nodule quartz inclusion thickness reaches 5/8". Very obviously this was a large knife, not a projectile--blade edge was what mattered, not thickness, and the pressure chipped edges/ tip represent some of the best Hopewell knapping work I have in my collection.The basal edge is no more dull than the blade edges as that wasn't a Hopewell trait (in general, reference the Steuben points which are ground). Absolutely every possible detail of the piece is lifetime guaranteed authentic. Shipping is free, and payment to be by either check or money order. I do NOT take pay pal--Roy A.
