Very Thin Early Archaic Blade
Archaic- This blade was an antique shop purchase in 1973. It has some writing on both sides but I didn’t notice it until I saw the photos. This piece is a very thin and well made. It has great overall patina and heavy mineral deposits Indicate it is probably near Paleo in age. It is great to hold with its weathered smoothness.
Early Flaked Hematite Tool
Here is a very early simple tool. It was made with just a couple of percussion flakes and a few pressure flakes along the edge. It has great patina all over but you can see where the maker left some of the original surface of the hematite cobble that has even heavier patina.
Hafted Blade with Spokeshave
Made from a large flake from near the rind of the chert nodule this unusual piece has a natural curve. The maker used that to his advantage to obtain a very thin cutting edge. It is almost unifaced with one side only having a bit of edgework. Intentional chipping made the arrow shaft size spokeshave on one edge of the blade and the heavy patina matches the rest of the piece.
Large Flaked Hide Scraper
This big old hide scraper was fashioned out of a piece of river cobble slate. A portion of the original stone did not need to be flaked in order to satisfy the maker. He probably figured to leave well enough alone with this thin and hard to work material.
Very Thin Red Ocher Blade
This blade was part of a small farmers collection from southern Indiana. This is very thin and well made. Unfortunately he kept it in a cigar box of other points and has some very small nicks along the edges. (Thus the price) It still is however a nice piece.
