Mainly formed from the cortex of a large hornstone nodule, but with a high grade gray hornstone 'inclusion' on one side--heck of a 'bullseye' by any collectors' standards. The workmanship is Early Archaic Culture, not a later Woodland Culture Cache Blade. This was a finished product, a knife, or even a" Cobbs"-type Preform for a Dovetail or Lost Lake. Length is an excellent 4&5/16" by 2&5/8" wide--my caliper reads a fraction over 3/8" thickness at the very thickest spot. That thinness should tell anyone this was the work of a master flint knapper--you rarely see a blade this size with so thin a profile--that's Early Archaic workmanship. The only damage actually looks more like later period use, a shaft scraper was carved into the upper blade edge, slight rub polish from use, and the patina of that indention looks more like Woodland usage--patina contrasts to the 7500bp Early Archaic patination. Provenance--the blade is from one of the counties of southwest Indiana or on the opposite side of the Ohio River, northwest Kentucky. The history didn't get passed to me, only the area of origin; regardless, the piece is lifetime guaranteed authentic. Shipping is $5.00, checks or M.O.s are welcomed--Roy A.
