A Turkey Tail Preform blade found along the Ohio River, Spencer County, Indiana, or on the opposite shore in Daviess County, Kentucky (finder didn't mark the piece), a long piece of hornstone my caliper reads at 3&3/8" by 2&1/16", yet only 7/16" max thickness. The Late Archaic knapper was in the process of notching the preform, but either stopped or decided to make the piece a hafted knife instead. One one face there is a broad flake removed, side-to-side and that flake inclines me to believe the preform wasn't intended to be bi-pointed (as Turkey Tail blades usually are). Also, there is significant use polish on the snapped base, one edge was ground as to not cut into a wooden handle--or maybe the handle rubbed the edge continually--hard to say which came first. The flaking is absolutely classic Late Archaic Turkey Tail Culture chipping, they even fashioned the tip into the cortex of the Hornstone spall (one of their traits). Can I explain the base? No..but work style and patination don't lie, every detail is lifetime guaranteed authentic. Shipping is $4.00, checks appreciated--Roy A.
