    Western Oklahoma Knife

    As I mentioned in one of the other posts, this kind of thing may be small potatoes to most of you "old pros", but it represents a one-of-a-kind for me. Other that a big bite our of the smaller end (what I would call the handle), it's in pretty nice shape. I have come across very few chunks of Alibates flint this size. This piece was recovered near Arapaho, quite a bit north of my usual stomping grounds. I would appreciate any comments.

    Thanks GH,
    An archaeologist friend of mine seems to think that the original owner of this piece probably got it too close to the campfire thus producing the large chink. I'm still amazed to see all of the collectors with the many knives in their collections and wonder how they happened onto that many intact pieces. As you said, I typically find bits or pieces. This is my one and only intact piece. Appreciate the nice words.

    My cousin has been a archy ever since the early 80's He is the one that got us on to so many of the lake sites that are now covered up. I not familiar with that blade type but the thinness and the color of the flint makes it a good lookin peice. As thin as it is could have also played a part in the break it has.(while making it) looks like it has been resharpened. Could have seen some use.

    Docmann,

    I'm having my annual get together in September. Bring your finds down for a show and tell. I'm going to bring a few of the points I've found. I'm planning to take the kids out next week to do a little creek hunting since all this rain we had may have washed some good stuff out.
