Uniface blade with a perforator, and a possible haftable scraper.

This first one I am guessing is a blade with a perforator. I am going by a very similar artifact shown in a Lar Hothem book, which has become my main non-internet reference. Great pictures. Anyway, the only differences between this one and the one in the book is the color of the flint, and that the perforator in the book extends in the opposite direction. The blade is still very sharp.

This next one is what I believe to be a scraper made from a white chert material. The front 1/3 of the piece with the edge has a bit of a foot to it so that, if it is a scraper, it would rest flat on the surface while the other 2/3 rises up at an angle to the surface. Hope I explained that correctly. Both of these were found together, with in just a few feet of each other in the gravel bed of a creek. I think I am pretty sure what I found based on comparing photos of similar items, but, if I am wrong, give it to me straight. I can take it.

Nice little tools. I like that thumb scarper. I like the old saying (Expedient and expendable).
Cool finds
