    Nothing special, just odd shaped. I found two of these almost identical, one broken, in a rock shelter.

    Largest thing i have found so far, not a knife but a preform, may have been used as a knife /shrug. Reed Springs biface preform.

    Thanks Hoss - quartz is the 'workingman's/blue collar' lithic, but it suits me: also shown less than other materials.

    Here's some of my Md. found blades - a lot of the ones made from tan quartzite were found near the river - I'm calling them my Adena squaw knives (they probably cleaned a ton of fish).

    I think that is a problem with all knives. If you are not finding them in context with other datable artifacts then they could fit any part of pre history. That large leaf shaped one of mine came from another collection and it was a gift to me. Someone had given that to my Dad and he in turn gave it to me.
    It came from a collection that was all found near his boyhood home in Derby CT. That other one I just posted came from a site where I was finding Otter Creek and Brewerton Points so I am pretty sure that is an Otter Creek preform that had been utilized as a knife. Otter Creek points date middle to late archaic.

    Wow - lots of cool knives here. That handful of 'ice quartz' from Weeping is stunning! I guess I'll look around to locate my camera..
    Anyone besides myself have trouble dating/classifing knives?
