Out of the Spencer--Warrick County, Indiana, area, this Indiana Hornstone Kirk has one of the more unusual stems I've seen on stemmed Kirks--edges were contracted, and slightly rounded. Onone side you can see where the Early Archaic knapper worked around an inclusion (fault line) in the flint, one side almost beveled edge, and the reverse side given a diagonal flute to thin it; on the opposite side of the stem a "crushing technique" was used--then edge-ground. The patina is 100% ancient, this isn't later period adaptation of a Kirk. One area to note is that the auriculate basal edge doesn't have so much as a trace of grinding, so was the stem modification part of a re-hafting due to wear? That's the only guess I have--it was time for a new handle, and that took some minor adjustments. Length is 2&1/8" by 1&1/4", very good symmetry at 5/16" thickness. Shipping is $4.00, checks or M.O.s are welcomed, day-after-receipt shipping--Roy A.
