Form, fine knapping work, and heavy patina, the three combine on this southern Indiana hornstone Cobbs-type knife. Length is 3&3/8" by 1&5/8", with a 'substantial' medial ridge thickness of 1/2"--when yo have a blade made that thick you know it was never gong to be a preform for the Dovetails or Lost Lakes that were a later adaptation of the Cobbs knives--a knapper simply couldn't thin that medial ridge once made. He could work along the edges, sure, but he couldn't take flakes off that thick ridge. Note one interesting thing with this Spencer or Perry County, Indiana, find is that the basal edge is ground somewhat--that's not often seen on basal edges of Cobbs Knives--no explanation, but it's an interesting feature, it tells you the Early Archaic knapper had some 'other' use in mind. NICE piece of flint, lifetime guaranteed authentic. Shipping is $4.00, checks or M.O>s welcomed--Roy A.
