  as a knife blade in it's interim stages. It has typical cursory but found in Crook Co., OR  
  thorough flaking patterns to both faces with intricate secondary    
  pressure flaking to it's edges for use as a knife. Sure wish I

  finished product, as the beauty of the host material is unequalled.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
VAFW9 A nice medium-sized Archaic bi-pointed Cascade obsidian Knife blade, Offered by original  85.00
  very well flaked on both faces by an experienced knapper. It has a clean finder’s family members,  
  break just above it's hafting line where it was re-glued together, and it has found in Harney Co., OR

  Knife blade, well worked on both faces with the exception of a 25% finder, found in  
  vertical flat section on side B (photos 3 & 5) left over from the original Crook Co., OR  
  host stone's cortex. Basalt is near impossible to work very well, but

  to both faces. It has an ancient lateral shear which runs     
  from the tip down a single edge for 3/8" (photos 6 > 8 and Ex: Milton Tuck  
  10 > 12) but is still an impressive and exceptional piece Stermer COA  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JAFW33 An almost translucent smoky gray obsidian Humboldt constricted Recovered from 250.00
  base Dart point/Knife form. It's very well and thoroughly flaked on Lake Co., OR  
  both faces by an advanced knapper with the exception of a small    
  8% section in the middle of side B, which shows a flatter surface    
  from the percussion flaking stage of this beauty. It has a slightly    
  twisted form from ancient resharpenings during it's use as a knife    
  blade. Quite an exceptional piece.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JAFW34 An opaque gray-black RARE obsidian Chisel-tip Parman Dart   Recovered from 325.00
  point having quite subdued lighter vertical banding. It's thoroughly Lake Co., OR 9/10 ON-HOLD jg
  flaked on both faces in a quite methodical manner. It's only slightly    
  asymmetrical, but is "all there" as it's ancient creator intended it to    
  be. The chisel tip itself is obviously intentional with very fine    
  pressure flaking patterns to the tip. The stem is lightly ground. Just    
  an exceptional example of this desirable type.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price

  well as secondary pressure flaking patterns. Side B shows intricate secondary pressure    
  flaking mostly around the edges with a 25% flatter section left from the percussion    
  flaking stage. (top of photo 4) This section is very interesting in that it allows the     
  viewing of underlying swirls and v-shaped patterns from the duo-flow action of the host    
  obsidian material, which is subdued in other areas of the blade by the flaking patterns. Ex: Alex Harding  
  It also has good alkali deposits as a testimony to it's great antiquity. Stermer COA
