    A hoe?

      It's a dandy artifact for sure. What chase said is probably as good a guess as any. A hoe, an axe? It was likely hafted in a manner so that there was a pointed end and a broad end that could be used depending on what the job required. This is just a guess.

        The edges are a little blurry, but thought I could see a little secondary edge work. Probably too big forward a knife though.

          That's a beautiful find. Agree with Joe that it was once hafted so hoe is a good guess. Pretty lithic. Congrats!

              That's an awesome find! Did you find that yourself or is it from a collection??

                That sure is a real nice artifact. I agree with Greg. My best guess is that it's a biface and not a finished tool.

                      I'd agree with Greg and Ron, too. That's some pretty material and work. Love those base thinning flakes! Biface/Preform. That one large flake in the middle is probably the one that nixed it for finishing they way he wanted it. Still could be used a I've seen "mistakes" made on preforms on all phases of production and every part of a point. These guys were good and quick with making points or they died. At worksites they went through tons of material. Here's what they said, "AAARGH DAYUM!!!!...... Next."

                        Interesting! That makes sense.

                        Hey Tom, I agree. On the bottom center of the picture at least five flakes piled up that make it near impossible to knap through that area.

                      As you all suggested was able to get these 4 angles. Is this helpful and way to do? I appreciate all of your thoughts and comments so much, has been so helpful

                        It helps a LOT. IF everyone would post exactly like that, it would be great, mmmmmkay? lol. Can see all the work. Great pics! Perfect, including the measure.
