This page contains Ancient Native American Indian "knapped" flint and chert tools such as Knife Blades, Hide Scrapers and Drills to name a few

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
TBMFT9 A bit of a non-descript black quartzite Knife Found in 20.00
  blade which is quite thin and flaked on both  Delta, CO  
  faces, although the flaking patterns are slightly    
  subdued owing to the nature of the host stone.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
TBMFT10 A burgundy and darker orange Crescent shaped  Found in 10.00
  Scraper which is mostly worked on side A, with Delta, CO  
  slight, cursory flaking on side B along the    
  convex edge. Somewhat on the crude side.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
TBMFT11 A grayish off-white chert hafted Scraper having Recovered in 15.00
  black tannic staining on one face. It's mostly uni- Delta, CO  
  facially worked and is a bit on the crude side    
  with a circular glue residue spot in the center of    
  side B leftover from mounting in a showcase.    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JAFT1 A fairly thick and sturdy opalescent, fully translucent obsidian Atlatl Valley Recovered from 140.00
  Triangular Hafted Knife blade from the Early Archaic period, between Lake Co., OR  
  2500 and 7000 years old. It's very well flaked on both faces mostly by    
  wide indirect percussion. It has minor usage wear to the edges but is    
  essentially a problem-free piece. It displays very interesting hafting    
  preparation to the base, with side B having the only direct percussion flake    
  apparent, which ends at a slight step to act as a hafting stop, and side A has    
  very similar traits except that the hafting channel flakes were created through    
  indirect percussion rather than by direct percussion. A nice, worthy piece. Ex: Davidson  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
RPFT1 A fairly small (for type) well worked down white, purple Recovered in 600.00
  and reddish quartzite Corner Tang Knife blade, it has a Western Oklahoma

  wear patterns. It also has crystal inclusions (photos 6 & 7) Ex: Greg Perino  

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
RPFT3 An outstanding very light gray chert Lerma Pointed Base BIG game Found on the Arkansas River in 1600.00

  outstanding piece which is well formed with thorough percussion flaking    
  patterns on both faces and having nice secondary pressure flaking     
  mostly in a left-handed beveling fashion. It has 2 old (not recent, but not    
  from ancient usage at the time of manufacture) nicks to one blade edge    
  near the tip. (photos 5 & 8) Still a beautiful MONSTER blade worthy    
  of centerpiece display in any worthy collection. Ex: Greg Perino Collection dlrpbb1
