reasonably thin for it's size and shows mostly percussion flaking patterns to both faces,
indicative of the Paleo Era, with slight secondary pressure flaking patterns appearing
along it's cutting edges. The cutting edges definitely show usage wear and the surface hints
at being river polished long ago. Although it's quite asymmetrical, as most knife blades

kind) semi-translucent honey colored agate Corner Tang knife blade made on a very large flake and
having nice frosty desert bleaching on both faces. "Most" corner tang knives are very refined with
good flaking patterns on both faces, but this one is in a class all by itself, having been made from a
very large flake and only showing sparse secondary flaking patterns along it's working edges.
Pictured in Overstreet's guide to Indian Arrowhead, 12th edition, page 942. Quite a unique piece!

JACR45 A very attractive and colorful blue-gray and red chert Wahmuza Knife Blade Recovered from the 350.00
which is quite sturdy and well flaked on both faces with an interesting Columbia River in Oregon
combination of initial percussion and detailed secondary pressure flaking to ALL
of it's edges. This one appears to be "all there" as it was anciently made and
used, and it's just a choice specimen for this type
Era: Developmental to Early Historic Period - 500 to 1500 years old Ex: William Ruether dlft - dlcr

Item: Type: Nightfire Knife Provenance: Price
JAFW59 A fairly thin (for it's size) and very worked-down black basalt Nightfire Knife Blade which is Recovered from 200.00
thoroughly flaked on both faces by an intermediate knapper and which shows good desert Lake County, Oregon
polish to both faces. The very tip has an ancient spider bite and the bottom of the stem (photos
6 & 8) is "snapped", quite possibly by the snap-base method of knapping manufacture. One
edge (right side in photo 1) shows how ancient re-sharpening modified it's form
Era: Early to Mid-Archaic Period - 4,000 to 7,000 years old Ex: Vernon Immell dlft - dlfw

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 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
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 Knife Provenance: Price
JAFT39 A pretty beefy multi-colored pink, burgundy and red chert/agate Cascade Knife Recovered from the 325.00
blade. It's well flaked on both faces, but it does have a couple of slight ledges on side Columbia River in Oregon
B with a stack on side A, left from where a flake-resistant section of the host material
terminated the flaking channels. Quite an interesting piece which shows tannic staining
from riding in the river for countless ages. It appears to have an ancient nick to one
edge, just below the red agate tip (left side in photo 6) but is otherwise intact.

Item: Type: Refugio Knife Provenance: Price

Item: Type: Kinney Knife Provenance: Price
RPFT38 A HUGE and VERY thin (for size) mottled blue flint Kinney Knife blade having nice Recovered from 350.00
frosty patina on side A from setting out in the desert sun for thousands of years. It's Kerrville Mound, Texas
thoroughly flaked on both faces with a couple of insignificant steps on side B. This one
is "all there" with one exception, it has a very recent nick to one edge near the base
(photo 7), which caused a section to flake off from the surface of side A (photos 1, 4
and 6) Still quite an impressive artifact worthy of being a center-piece in any collection
Era: Mid-Archaic to Woodland - 2,000 to 5,000 years old Ex: Greg Perino

Item: Type: Covington Blade Provenance: Price
RPFT39 A mottled tan and gray flint Covington Knife blade which is thoroughly flaked on Recovered from Texas (NFI) 185.00
both faces but with a small stack on the hafting line of side A. (Photo 5) It's a bit
on the slender side, which tells me that it underwent many ancient re-sharpenings.
Quite an attractive piece

RPFT42 A most interesting lavender chert Scraper, re-worked from an anciently damaged Recovered from 30.00
