Item: Type: Cascade Dagger Provenance: Price
JAFW82 A VERY long and absolutely Gorgeous semi-translucent obsidian Cascade Dagger Recovered from 900.00
Blade from the earliest Archaic period when the technique of secondary pressure flaking Lake County, Oregon  
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  
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

Item: Type: Elko Corner Notched Arrowhead Provenance: Price
LSFW8 Well, I won't even call this one interesting... it's down right strange. An opaque black obsidian Elko Recovered from 75.00
  Corner Notched Arrowhead which was made from a large flake and retains a curved "bowed" form Lake Co., OR  
  from the original flake's shape. It's thoroughly flaked on side A by an experienced knapper, but side    
  B retains a 20%  flat section running vertically from just above the base to the center, left from the    
  original flake's flat surface. This is made up for, by advanced secondary pressure flaking all around    
  the edges of side B. Additionally, this one is a bit "over-sized" for the type.

In this release we have another short run of Stockton points.
