Listed price includes the cost to ship the piece--a nicely patinated Early Archaic knife (Cobbs Knife), Indiana Hornstone from a far southern Indiana collection (county wasn't included on a provenance tag). Length is 3&3/4', width is 2&3/16", and max thickness is slightly over 3/8". The bevel on the more intact side would indicate a much larger blade as first made--LOTS of 7500BP usage as the more heavily 'chewed edge' shows. Both sides of the lower blade show indentions, the patina in those indented edges slightly darker--I suspect a later culture hunter found and utilized the knife. When you find notches that were not original to the piece you know some later user likely hafted it; those were the tie-on spots. Note these are not new chipping, though, they're old, simply not 7500 BP era. The overall patina on the knife has a "creek-found" look, and I wish the last owner had tagged their collection--as that didn't happen I can only give my opinion (as an old creek hunter)--I think this knife was found in a southern Indiana creekbed--it's 100% real. I welcome checks or M.O.s, however I do not use paypal--Roy A.
