    was it found in a plowed area? the second pic seems to show edge wear like earth tools show here. maybe some kind of abrader? looks to be very porous and not too sturdy of a material. I can see why you kept it, cause its got the look! good eyes!

    Man Kat you sure can pick a hard one , the edges look like it could have been used for something but I think it is to thin for an abraderI don't know if anyone for sure can tell, neat find

    I would guess its a base to a knife. Maybe they left the cortex on the base and the part that is missing would of been the blade.

    ...maybe it's a bit heavy, not real though painter...would that still be iron ore? Hi rock...that would be a BIG knife...or maybe not that big for you guys!? lol All of the sides except the broken part seem to have been "worked" on, and for some reason it reminds me of the tip of a chain saw blade...odd, yes!

    ...wow painter that does look like it, maybe a bit courser, but like it! So yours is "real heavy"? Oh, just thought...is it magnetic? Going to test mine......I'm back..lol...it does attract a magnet...what about yours? Of course a lot of rocks do I guess, but it's a step forward...maybe? Thanks for the pics

    Haha some of my pieces are slightly magnetic and some aren't but that doesn't mean it will alway attract a regular household magnet ... What part of the country was it found?
