    Atypical flake tools.

    I think it could be a good exercise if some folks would post some of their unusual, uncommon, and/or not yet named, flake tool types. Itís artifacts like these that have me examining about every flake I come across when Iím hunting.

    Here are are a few of my favorites of that type.

    Here is a larger example of a piece I found last summer.
    On the first side this large flake is pretty much non-descript, but the other side reveals lots of workmanship and that is is a decent yet crude blade.

    This is one of the nicest flake knives I have. Was made on a channel flake I do believe. Super thin, and super fine edgework on it as well.

    One nondescript side one super nice side.

    Here are a few of some worked flakes, my camera is not the best lol. number 1 has a very fine worked edge the other side is smooth. number 2 is wicked sharp with a very fine serrated edge. There i a large blade and a small blade, looks like a arrowhead but i don't think so. I am sure some of my flakes had a purpose but a lot are just flakes. The ones quito has shown look like they were used for some fine picking/cutting/scraping any way i will look at some more worth posting.

    I like these kinds of threads. Heres a few pieces that I found, but never really knew exactly what their uses were, these are my guesses.

    Cant tell if this is a really wore drill, or hafted engraver? This one is certainly different from what I usually find. Fairly small too.
