I would call the cornernotch a Kirk, but there is that trace of bevel-sharpening on this Spencer County, Indiana, piece--does that--or is that enough to call the piece a Lost Lake? Not sure, but it's an outstanding grade of hornstone, unusual that the flint is that translucent. Length is 2&1/16" by 1&7/16", sharpened repeatedly to this stage. That impact fracture to the tip was enough to shatter the tip, but a 'salvage flake' opposite the impact re-aligned the tip to a sharp point (or perforator). The side of the base was broken in a 'torque fracture', the Early Archaic hunter twisted the knife way, way too hard and the base didn't take the pressure--common type basal flake-off, as it the tip of the one barb. You take the good with the bad in a 7500 year old artifact, and in this case the flint more than makes up for the damage. Neat piece, guaranteed authentic. Shipping is $4.00, checks or M.O.s are welcomed--Roy A.
