    Grobb, you have the bit to a chopper similar to the one below, I think. Not a bad find at all!

    Going to have to stick to my call. I still think it is a hoe. The tip shows usage wear and I'm just not seeing the bi face knife on this one. The way it is bladed is just like a hoe. This would be a diamond shape if whole is what I'm assuming Aleisters and just plain are saying? Only one type and at first stage it could possibly be close, that would be a harahey knife. This has the form of a hoes business end.

    Biface ? Both sides worked
    No, this is a uniface knife or scraper, most likely from the middle Woodland time period.

    Here's some of the Paleo crescents from the Channel Islands off California. The reason some are suggesting it's something that broke is because of the thick cross section opposite the blade edge. It's a nice find, looks like a nice tool by any name.

    Yup it is broke whatever it is. The usage wear on blade edge and form is what lead me to believe it is a hoe. Here are some examples of flint hoes. These are cahokian but flint hoes were used over most of the country. Look how the tip is and imagine driving the hoe into the ground and think of how it would break off all of these clues are what is driving my decision.........

    GTP, I have many agriculture implements in my collection. I know that you are normally on the money with your calls. I'm just curious what the whole hoe would look like. Would this be a complete hoe, like Grobb has the bit to?

    NC... That piece looks to be a hoe. It was all on the maker how big,how crude they wanted it. I went on form and wear on the blade everyone else opinions hold weight as well. After the break it could have been used as a knife. The problem is the piece is not whole so a positive ID is difficult.

    Grobb it is hard to speculate what broken pieces may have been. I don't think its a woodland site. I'm leaning middle to late archaic but once again a point type when you find one will date it, as these tools were used when paleo man settled down into village life.

    The brown j.a.s.p.er blade(they censored jaspe) I'm thinking could be a deep notch related to lost lakes or a dovetail point. The other blade is broke on back side but has the hafting area intact and blade. In my opinion that is a knife....
