The photo showing the blade edge, VERY typical Early Archaic knapping (sharpening technique), parallel flake scars stair-stepping towards the tip. Now maybe, just maybe it's because I grew up on a site with Early Archaic artifacts, but that flaking technique is what I consider "as good as it gets", even when we're talking an everyday artifact like this knife/ scraper. While shaped something like a Cobbs Knife, a preform, the rounded base here is heavily use-polished--very few Cobbs have a ground and/ or heavily used basal edge--and before someone asks the question, no one seems to have a good explanation why that is. Run the base of this knife across your palm, the work polish is evident; held right or left handed, the piece will fit your hand. A guess as to culture--Kirk, and that's because the knapped edge isn't beveled, it's worked from both faces out toward the edge--Kirk technique. Length is 2&13/16" by 1&1/2', max thickness is 5/16". Origin: either Indiana Perry County or Hancock County, Kentucky, one side of the Ohio River or the other., real in every detail. Shipping is $5.00, checks are welcomed--Roy A.
