thoroughly flaked on both faces, mostly by direct percussion to it's center sections with VERY Columbia River in Oregon
detailed and intricate secondary pressure flaking to ALL of it's edges. Quite a superior piece!

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
JACR41 Now this one is hard to describe, because it has SO many unique features. A very deep chocolate Recovered from the 350.00
brown with white veins and a red tip chert Cascade Knife Blade which is very well flaked on both faces Columbia River in Oregon
by an experienced knapper. It has a couple of vertically oriented ledges in the dead center of side A,
and side B has a bit of a "dip" from the left edge where a fair-sized section from the initial percussion
flaking stage was left un-touched by follow-up flaking. (And this very well could have been intentional
as a "thumb-rest" for using this hand-held blade) Quite an attractive and unique piece which is "all there"
Era: Early Archaic Period - 4,000 to 8,000 years old Ex: William Ruether

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
JACR42 A fairly slender and quite unique brown and tan jasper with white and honey Recovered from the 325.00
colored agate tips Cascade Bi-pointed Knife Blade. It's thoroughly flaked on Columbia River in Oregon
both faces by an experienced knapper and appears to be "all there" as it was
anciently made and used. It displays MANY ancient re-sharpenings to it's
cutting edges, which were made in the earlier Archaic fashion as opposed to the
later Archaic fashion which caused a beveled edge. Quite an attractive artifact.

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
JACR43 A deep semi-translucent rootbeer brown agate Cascade Knife Blade which is fairly thin for it's size and Recovered from the 400.00
which has the most fascinating old, old ancient percussion flaking patterns appearing on both faces. In Columbia River in Oregon
addition to the basic percussion flaking patterns, this one has very intricate secondary pressure flaking
patterns to the same common edge on each face. Even though a few sections of the blade edges appear
a bit rough, this is as was anciently intended, the only exception being that it appears to have a lateral
1/4" shear from it's tip (photo 7) which I can't tell if it was intentional or caused by normal everyday use.
Just a gorgeous, outstanding piece.

center of both faces, with additional percussion and elongated pressure flaking
patterns around all of it's edges. This one's quite an amazing and attractive
artifact which appears to be "all there" as it was anciently made and used.

Item: Type: Wahmuza Drill Provenance: Price

usage "rounding" of the tip and is "all there" as it was anciently made and used

Item: Type: Cascade Knife Provenance: Price
JAFT39 A pretty beefy multi-colored pink, burgundy and red chert/agate Cascade Knife Recovered from the 325.00
blade. It's well flaked on both faces, but it does have a couple of slight ledges on side Columbia River in Oregon
B with a stack on side A, left from where a flake-resistant section of the host material
terminated the flaking channels. Quite an interesting piece which shows tannic staining
from riding in the river for countless ages. It appears to have an ancient nick to one
edge, just below the red agate tip (left side in photo 6) but is otherwise intact.

JACR47 A very thin and delicate, almost fully translucent obsidian Rose Springs Corner Notched Recovered from the 120.00
Arrowhead which is thoroughly and intricately flaked on both faces by a near-master Columbia River in Oregon
knapper. The base is a little bit irregular with an ancient clip from one corner of the stem and
the very tip appears to have a flea bite, which "might" have been just the way it was made.
Quite a superior piece

Item: Type: Rabbit Island Provenance: Price
DFCR77 A fairly small and delicate red and tan jasper Rabbit Island Arrowhead which is Recovered on the Columbia River in 85.00
thoroughly and intricately flaked on both faces with nice edge serrations, created Kittitas Co., WA during the 1950's 65.00
by an advanced knapper. The bottom of the basal stem is "flat", but under
microscopic examination, this appear to have just been part of the technique of
manufacture by the ancient knapper. A superior piece

Item: Type: Eastgate Provenance: Price
TDICR639 A VERY choice, very thin beige chert Eastgate Arrowhead which is a VERY superior and classic Recovered from the Columbia 650.00
example of this type. It's thoroughly flaked on both faces by an experienced knapper and is "all River near The Dalles, Oregon 575.00
there" with the possible exception of the tip which is "rounded off". (Under microscopic
examination, I cannot determine if this was "by design" or not.) Published in Overstreet's Guide to
Indian Arrowheads, Edition 12 - page 1036 where it's listed as a G10+ (which equates to "one of
the best examples known") Unquestionably one of the best pieces we've ever seen of this type. Ex: Buckles

TDICR626 A fairly large (for type) purple, brown, blue-gray and red silicified wood Columbia Recovered from the Columbia 350.00
Mule Ear Knife Blade which is thoroughly flaked on both faces, despite the hardness River near The Dalles, Oregon 250.00
and difficulty of working the host material. The re-sharpening pressure flaking to the
cutting edges is quite intricate and with the exception of a very small v-shaped
crystalline inclusion just above one corner of the base which weathered away, this one
is "all there" as it was anciently made and used. Quite an attractive, multi-colored piece. Ex: Buckles

Item: Type: Paddle Drill Provenance: Price
TDICR636 A very attractive mottled red and burgundy jasper-agate Paddle Drill which is Recovered from the Columbia 125.00
thoroughly flaked on both faces to a median ridge by an experienced knapper. It's River at The Dalles, Oregon 100.00
asymmetrical with a nick to one corner of the base, which leads me to believe that
this one was "salvaged" from a damaged arrowhead. Quite a fascinating artifact

Item: Type: Cascade Provenance: Price
TDICR638 A pretty good-looking mottled burgundy and gray chert Cascade dart point Recovered from the Columbia 165.00
which is VERY thoroughly flaked on both faces and having very detailed and River in Washington (NFI) 99.00
intricate edge serrations. Surprisingly, side A has more flaws than side B, but
only 2. The first flaw is a relatively deep depression shown on the right side in
photo 6, and the second flaw is a short and slight diagonal "step" shown directly
below the depression, also in the center of photo 6. Personally, I feel that the
KILLER edge serrations MORE than make-up for these 2 manufacturing flaws.
(Can you picture the ancient knapper seated on the ground and concentrating on
his efforts while wearing a T-Shirt which reads "SH*T ... HAPPENS!")

Item: Type: Columbia Plateau Provenance: Price
TDICR643 Now this one is just downright cute! A semi-translucent, opalescent white agate Columbia Offered for sale by the original 40.00
Plateau Birdpoint Arrowhead which is thoroughly flaked on both faces by a near-master finder who recovered this one
knapper. The stem is longer than most Columbia Plateau types of this size, even to the on the Columbia River in
point of resembling a Rabbit Island point, which was manufactured during the exact time Gilliam County, Oregon
frame... possibly a "cross-over" or sharing of technologies? With the sweeping barbs, I
awarded the Columbia Plateau designation to this beauty. It has an ancient spider bite to
the tip of one barb, but is otherwise "all there". Just a neat, delicate and attractive piece.

very intricate and thorough on both faces, created by a master knapper, with the exception on the Columbia River in
of a very small (8%) flat section remaining from the original host stone's outer cortex layer Gilliam County, Oregon
just above the right notch on side B. Quite a little masterpiece which makes me wonder
how many "failures" the ancient knapper experienced before turning out this beauty.
