    Got lucky seeing this one...Small KRF blade.

    Find an item every once in awhile that makes you wonder, how and the heck did I see that? Lighting and angle sometimes have to be just right. Pipestone was a little easier to see! (Found by my brother. He struggles to see the tough stuff even though he's built lower to the ground!)

    That is a really beautiful blade. You do have the eyes tuned in. Go with it.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    KRF is Knife River Flint. From Dunn and Mercer Co.'s in N.Dak. Thousands of years ago a cattail swamp was buried and on its way to turning into lignite. Some event caused the lignite to silicify. Years later, the deposit was ripped out and scattered over the two counties in N.Dak. The cream colored specks in KRF are remains of the cattails. KRF is one of the toughest, sharpest, tool quality flints there is in N.Amer.

    Also, that's the first piece of Catlinite in raw form I've seen found. I've seen many artifacts, but never raw stone anywhere but the quarry. You made some good finds. Gary

    Thanks for sharing this info. Gary. Here's a pic of some of the larger unworked pieces we've found over the years along with some of the broken pipes and worked pieces we've picked up.
