    PLEASE... show me yours (abraider's, straightners) arrow shaft & bone

    would love to see some abraiders and arrow shaft straightners and such
    to compare with the only one I've found. Just some samples if you can.
    It would be very appreciated. Thanks....

    These were found by my grandpa...One has abrading grooves on all four sides--it had been used a lot! Grooves are really deep.
    The other two have a single, shallow groove on one side only.
    All made of sandstone.

    Those are some nice abraiders that little four groove on is great, you can see it sure has been used a lot. The one with the narrow groove look's like they might have been using it to sharpen bone needles or awls.

    I love the four groove stone--The stone looks kinda reddish in color and is very 'gritty'.
    The speckled stone was hard to get a picture of to show the actual groove--it also has some kind of other notches on the opposite side.

    Re: PLEASE... show me yours (abraider's, straightners) arrow shaft & bone

    Thank you sandcreek4, those are great, I really like seeing tools they used,
    its neat how they came up with the tools for certain task. I would bet that
    they were took care of and kept where they were handy to get to and who
    knows maybe a watchful eye upon them so they wouldn't walk off.
    thanks again... wes

    Re: PLEASE... show me yours (abraider's, straightners) arrow shaft & bone

    I have had these two stones since the late 50s, never really have had positive IDs, suggestions have been sinew stones, straighteners, and "what the heck".

    Re: PLEASE... show me yours (abraider's, straightners) arrow shaft & bone

    I must have 30 mano's and everytime i pick one up I hope its a shaft straighter on the back side. No luck yet. It is my goal to find one to add to my old archery collection.

    Nice looking stone tools.

    Re: PLEASE... show me yours (abraider's, straightners) arrow shaft & bone

    Thanks All. great pieces. I enjoy seeing all tools even scrapers, still dont really know
    what some of the things I pick up are or how they were used, I imagine that they used
    all kinds of items to do what ever is needed. They probably fashioned tools on the spot
    for certain tasks. Hey thanks again for the reply's and i'm looking foward to seeing
    larson1951 pieces and anyone elses rocks and more.

    Here's the few I have. The first 6 pictures are from North Dakota and were a gift. The 7th one is a personal find from a Ft Ancient site. It has a groove on the back side as well.
