    Very cool. Im no expert but judging by its size it looks like the type used by a medicine man to test reflexes by striking it on the knee. Hope someone knows what it really is.
    Awesome find.

    PigeonMan,

    You posted this one in a forum for Central & South American relics, you should post it in the Native American relics forum.

    Nice little axe!

    Looks like it may have been used for knocking small dry branches off of tree's for firewood gathering, that is the best I can say.

    I really don't know much about stone axes, even though I have a few...I even have a couple of small ones, but none that small...I have a personal view or opinion on the small axes...I personally believe that they are children's toys designed to teach a child how to use a larger one when they grow up...But I could be wrong...

    How much weight in an axe would you want to carry on a hunt?
    I have used a small iron/ steel bitted one to split a few pelvis on deer.
    While it would hurt to get bonked in the head with ...If not designed for portability it was well crafted for a Squaw ,or youth tool.

    Nice find, probably prehistoric. And they would have used these as an all around tool/weapon.

    Iv only personally seen one other axe similar to that one found here in Maryland I also thought they were probably used for chopping smaller branches and like others pointed out a small axe comes in handy for hunting and would be nice and light.

    Beautiful little axe. I have personally seen a couple found here on the Delmarva peninsula, and have heard of a few others. I think they could perhaps have been ceremonial or for display rather than functional. The only reason I say this is because of the ones I have seen or heard of, they have all seemed to be nearly perfect, and none were beat up as if they had been used much. I suspect if they had been used by children they probably would not have survived long in good condition?
