Cobbs Knife - #6-6

Size: 3 11/16" long x 1 5/16" wide.

Provenance: Found at Seven Mile Island, TN.

Condition: Killer. Tempted to call it perfect, but the tip isn't quite perfect. 9.75/10. I don't know what the material is, but it is beautifully patinated, and high quality. Reminds me of Jasper, and it may be that. Base is skillfully rounded with grinding, and the entire remainder of the piece shows Early Archaic mastery of parallel pressure flaking in the bevel to create serrations. A very fine blade.
