The finder described finding one half of this extra long hornstone knife and going back additional times until the other half was found. The pieces fit except for that one sliver of flint you see missing--length is 6&1/4" by a narrow 1" wide base--thickness is really, really impressive, only 5/16" max. For a stone tools knapper to shatter a very large piece of hornstone, work their preform to this thinness, well, ask a modern knapper and they'll tell you that work was a master of their art. Note that the break is modern, the "V" break shows very dark, freshly exposed hornstone. Two other things happened with this extra long knife, and both look like later period salvage; the original chipping is Early Archaic pressure flaking, but on the tip you can see where the piece was used as a gouge by some later user--it's not modern work, but shows less age than the knife body. The second area of interest is on the basal corner--you find the same darker flaking where some Hopewell or Mississippian later used the piece, rehafted it. When you hold the knife in-hand it makes a lot more sense than I can easily describe. The find is out of Knox or Vigo County, Indiana, guaranteed authentic (and as described). Shipping is $5.00, with checks or M.O.s welcomed--Roy A.
