Hopewell knives had their own pattern, a long percussion flaked knife with very good edgework. This blade is Indiana Hornstone, found along the Ohio River in Spencer or Perry County, Indiana, 3&5/8" by almost 1&1/8". The very tip and base show the extent of the hornstone nodule, the flint shades to 'cherty' cortex on either end. Personally, it'd seem like that softer cortex would dull too easily, but both Adena and Hopewell used the same 'include it' technique on their points and blades. They had their reasons, and it's some two thousand years too late to ask why--lifetime guaranteed authentic in every detail. Note the tip here is fashioned into a gouge--not broken, but made into a hole punch by way of a flake removed from each face. Shipping is $5.00 and checks are much appreciated--Roy A.
