    Sorry but it is a rock with natural erosion.

    The indention does have pecking marks but the flat sides have lines probably caused by being pushed by glaciers. It does feel right when holding it.

    Hereís an axe head I found a few years ago .... it has a similar rounded profile / shape to it but there is still several key features that a usable axe needs like a groove for hafting a handle and a decent bit end that would cut well this one weighs 8lbs so imagine it needed a long handle to properly use

    That is an artifact, it is a 3/4 groove ax.

    That's what I was thinking. Maybe I was wrong by using the term axe.

    I just think it's kind of funny how quick the moderators on this forum are to moving a thread to the geo fact forum. I would say that the fact that at least one other member says that it would need closer, hands on inspection, before they could rule it out as an artifact would mean something. I understand that after seeing rock after rock thought to be artifact gets old. At the same time that mindset potentially puts blinders on a person.
