Flint Tools Page 5  Page 1   Page 2   Page 3   Page 4

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
JAFW35 A very good-sized semi-translucent, slightly diagonally banded Recovered from SOLD 9/16
  obsidian Early Archaic Cascade Knife form having a "knobbed" base. Lake Co., OR  
  Made by a (near?) master knapper, it shows very intricate oblique    
  transverse flaking patterns coupled with flatter sections left from the    
  percussion flaking stage. Obviously a blade which the creator felt that    
  he would be using for a long time. It has what appears to be a very    
  slight ancient nick on one edge near the tip (photo 8), but is otherwise    
  "all there" as it was anciently made and used. Just an exceptional piece.   dlfw

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
JDFT2 A beautiful, fairly thin blue flint Kentucky 75.00
  Decatur Blade showing substantial   7/26 ON-HOLD bg
  mineralization as testimony to it's    
  antiquity. A choice piece from the

  3,000 and 9,000 years old !

  gray chert Lerma knife blade from the Archaic Harper, TX in  
  period, between 5,000 and 10,000 years old.  the 1980's  
  This one shows a fair amount of beveling from    
  ancient re-sharpenings. Unfortunately it was     
  broken and glued about 3/4" above the hafting    
  area. From the seamless way that the two    
  pieces join, I would judge the break to be an    
  unfortunate modern mishap    

Item: Type: Provenance: Price
