You know what the Decatur (Fractured Base) knapper was trying to do...it just didn't quite go as planned: the edge fracture flake traveled completely across the base, rook off the opposite corner of the stem. The Early Archaic period knapper made the best of the situation, he ground the base as he normally would, probably tiied the hornstone blade on with a slightly higher than usual overlap. It didn't leave a whole lot of blade exposed above the wooden handle, but there was no intention of tossing the flint head--they used it. A neat salvage job from a Hancock County, Kentucky, collection1&7/8" by 1&1/8". Shipping is $5.00, checks are welcomed, appreciated--Roy a.
