Out of the southeast Indiana, area, Clarksville area was the location history I got on this very nice Fractured Base Decatur, along with the last few collectors who have had the piece displayed in their frames. The Decatur is made from Laurel flint/ chert native to that area 2&11/16" by 1&1/2", and 3/8" center thickness--seems thinner when you hold the piece, but a caliper doesn't lie...I may overuse the word, but the point has great symmetry. The 'down corners' of both wings are intact, but on the top of each shoulder there is a small ancient "torque fracture"--you twist a hafted knife too hard and small bits of flint will chip away; that happened here. The base shows excellent fracturing from each outer edge--a fingernail will catch in the center...trick showed me thirty year back by an older collector.. The blade edges have ancient sharpening/ use dings, obviously this was a much used favorite knife for some Early Archaic (7500 ybp) hunter. Every detail is lifetime guaranteed authentic. Shipping is $4.00, with checks/ M.O.s welcomed, day-after-receipt shipping--Roy A.
