Here is one beautiful Early Archaic point. It was purchased at a museum auction in Xenia, Ohio in the 1960’s. At first I thought it had a tip nick. But viewing it with a loop you can see several tiny chips taken off to repair a small impact fracture during the time of it’s use. There is an ear nick that is also as old as the point itself and possibly done during it’s making or resharpening. It has a ground base and is highly beveled on one side of each face.
Primitive Hand Forged Wrought Iron Food Chopper
This is a very nice early food chopper. It is excellent condition and still has a very sharp blade. The handle is solid and strong. It shows the skill of the early american blacksmiths. It will last another 200 years even if it is put back into service. I use one very similar to this one and just love it. Free delivery.
