    I've also had reasonable success utilizing wooden billets on certain materials....especially volcanics such as obsidian, rhyolite and certain vein quartzes. The woods I used were burr oak, chokecherry and osage orange....cut and fashioned green and then fire hardened. They somehow deliver the force from a strike in a different, more sustained manner.

    You would like persimmon then. That wood dulls my saw every time.

    Tnmountains and kuger....I would be willing to bet that early man in your respective areas knew the properties of those woods and used them when needed. It would be fun to experiment with both types.

    Looks like a marble type of rock GB. It comes in all colors and is very hard.
    Personal finds were on private property which I have permission to hunt.

    Here is one of the tools I've found I mentioned earlier. What do you guys think? Knapping?

    In my opinion, your rock seems to posses the same fracturing (conchoidal) properties as any rock you would use it to knap on. In my experience, a rock with the same qualities isn't really the best to try to knap another. Something harder, such as granite or hardstone would work much better...but would still cause a lot of crushing on impact.

    So if used on lower quality material...which there is alot of here..my "rock" should work or so I think. What do yo think that "rock" is? Mabey it was used in makeng shell tools somehow.. I'm not sure. Thanks for your help. I see you have over 40 yrs. Experience in Canada .. is there any tool up there that resembles this "tool" from Florida?

    As to the type it looks like flint to me. Now it does look like a core or a early stage preform.

    Sometimes I don't know why I post some things on here that I should know people aren't going to be used to seeing. If you look at the flaking pattern it's obvious that section was purposely shaped in that manner. there is no reason that pressure flaking in that small area at those angles would be part of the process of knapping a projectile point. And yes of course it's Flint.

    Gatorboy....maybe such objects were used on softer materials like sandstone or limestone. I've seen the odd example up here which I believe were used someway in the meat/hide preparation process. Bone working is yet another possibility. Close examination of the "business" end of your artifact may reveal whether it was used to smash on things or used to scrape/score them. There's some evidence that certain flint type tools were used to "peck" minute grains off of hardstone to create grooves for hafting, etc. This was accomplished by the repeated pecking of the target stone, pulverizing small amounts of material as they went. (I'm sure this was horribly tedious!)
