The basal grinding and pressure flaking would indicate this Daviess Co.,Indiana, Buck Creek was part of the Early Archaic Buck Creek form, not the nearly identical shape(Smithsonia) fashioned in the Woodland Period. Woodland knappers preferred percussion chipping, but this 2&5/16" by 1&3/16" blade is almost all pressure chipped--an interesting feature is that the blade is a full 3/8" thick. The base is the only place where the thickness drops to 1/4" thickness--was there about three times the blade length as first made? That would be my guess, this was one big handled knife as it first started. Note the blade is four-edged (quadra-facial) sharpened, not beveled. That must have been hard to do with a tip this thick (see the close up photo). Some hunter spent more than a few minutes deciding how & where to make a chip, studied his work, and proceeded to the next chip. It has character, and is authentic, period. There is one small chip on a barb, and it's ancient use-wear. Shipping is $4.00, with checks or M.O.s welcomed--Roy A.
