chert, an unusual feature for this host material) A very outstanding specimen!

light basal grinding and is "all there" as it was anciently made and used

covering all of side B, most likely from sitting along a dried up lake bed for countless years. It has an
ancient knick to the tip of the base (photo 7) and a couple of more recent nicks to it's edges. (photo 6)
It also has numerous ledges and one serious stack on side A (right side near the tip in photo 1 and
closeup in photo 5) where the host material resisted an inexperienced knappers flaking attempts.

polish to both faces. The very tip has an ancient spider bite and the bottom of the stem (photos

clear obsidian Rose Springs Stemmed Arrowhead which is thoroughly flaked on both faces Lake County, Oregon 10/28 ON-HOLD tmp

side B (photo 4) The edge of the basal bulb is irregular from ancient chipping and the
tips of the barbs are also anciently nicked. I think that the most interesting feature of this
piece is the difference in patination from side a to side B. Quite an ancient piece

Item: Type: Cascade Dagger Provenance: Price
JAFW82 A VERY long and absolutely Gorgeous semi-translucent obsidian Cascade Dagger Recovered from 950.00
Blade from the earliest Archaic period when the technique of secondary pressure flaking Lake County, Oregon 10/28 ON-HOLD tmp
was unknown. This beauty is VERY thoroughly flaked on both faces with an interesting
combination of percussion and indirect percussion flaking patterns. The very tip is
diagonally chipped, but other than that, this baby is "all there" as it was anciently made
and used. Need I say that if *I* had been the finder of this rare artifact, you would have
heard my "WHOOP" halfway around the world. Just a TOTALLY outstanding artifact.

Item: Type: Cascade Flesher/Knife Provenance: Price
JAFW81 A fairly thick and sturdy blue-gray dacite Cascade Hide Flesher/Knife blade. It's Recovered from Catlow Valley 275.00
well flaked on both faces by an experienced knapper and shows no overt flaws. near French Glenn, Oregon 10/28 ON-HOLD tmp
The flesher tool was used to process animal hides as a combination hide scraper,
hide separator, and knife blade. Quite a fascinating piece, and I've haven't seen
very many of this in stone. (Flesher tools are more commonly made from bone,
which testifies to the great antiquity of this unique and rare tool.)

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
JAFW80 A somewhat slender gray-black dacite Cascade "Squaw's Knife Blade" which is well Recovered from 75.00
flaked on both faces by a beginner knapper. It has a percussion flake scar on side B Harney County, Oregon  
which acted as a finger-rest for this hand-held blade. I normally call blades having this
feature "dinner knives" where the ancients would grip a piece of meat between their teeth
and use the "dinner knife" to slice off the piece of meat for consumption. The edges are a
bit on the rough side, which was probably intentional in order to create a sharp cutting
edge during an era when the secondary pressure flaking technique was unknown
