I've owned this Hardin drill so long I can't recall exactly where (which county) it came from in western Kentucky--Hopkins--Todd--or McLean Co--that area/ The piece is A Knobbed Hardin, right for the area, made from a good grade (high silicate) Hornstone, slightly under 1&15/16" by 1&9/16"--base is heavily ground. That tip, though. There are no obvious grinder marks, I'll state that first off. Could someone have used a buffer wheel to get rid of grinder marks--yes--but that's al lot of trouble to go to, and the heat of grinders tends to shatter hornstone when the flint gets too hot. So, is the tip ancient...I truthfully don't know. Even under a 10x loop you can study the piece until you can convince yourself--wait a day, and then come to the opposite conclusion.The Hardin is priced to reflect that uncertainty. Everything below the tip is lifetime guaranteed authentic--but not the tip. Buy it knowing that. Shipping is $4.00, checks are welcomed--Roy A.
