    Re: bone knife with copper blade

    This is one of the coolest items for banner that I've seen in a long time.

    I usually don't say this, but have you thought about donating or loaning it to your local museum (of course one of those donations that names you with the option to get it back) ? They would have a way to preserve it. Bone usually becomes brittle after being exposed to air again. It's just it's a find of a lifetime and I would say probably very unique.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Congratulations for finding it.

    awesome lars,
    i have been waiting to see you get something up there, i have seen so many museum grade artifacts found by you, it was just a matter of time, making the banner gives such a warm feeling. in my opinion you have tons of banner finds.
    when i saw that up there, i had no doubt in my mind it was you who found it before i even clicked the link

    Re: bone knife with copper blade

    THANKS,jp,kugar,newt,artorious,chong2,silver searcher,gwdigger
    jeff a,I believe that the hafted knives of the hopewell and mandan were the same when it came to that
    I think that most of the hafted from the dakotas were made from chert(TRSS) or KRF and the Ohio versions
    were made from the other types of flints that Pickaway and SRV know much more about
    once again Thank you!

    Re: bone knife with copper blade

    I saw that up there also and knew it was you. Congratulations Steve!!! Hey? So its buffalo bone with hand hammered copper? Unbeleivable. You need to sweep your fields with a metal detector for any more copper and maybe even gold. I have seen some stunning examples. Great find and congratuulations again.

    Re: bone knife with copper blade

    How old is this and what is the historical significance? Given the responses, I don't doubt for a second it is an important object, but I know nothing about these sorts of artifacts and this is a good time to learn! Congratulations on the banner.
