Not a finished artifact. Been worked but the sharp end looks like an accidental break.

Definitely a bit of the tip is broken off, but it sure seems to fit the hand ever so perfectly to be used as a gut hook. The places made into finger grooves are extremely smooth compared to the rest of it. The curved part is still sharp enough to cut you. Tip of the point is what seems messed up though.

Thanks for the input! Have y'all ever heard of having them tested/analyzed? Like some kind of carbon dating any material left inside the cracks in the rock? It would be interesting to know what and when they were grinding. Hell, maybe I've watched too much Oak Island.

Virtually all the types have been carbon dated. Charcoal from immediate context is best on dug, undisturbed sites. Anyway most artifact ages are well established.

My dad was a huge collector and spent all of his free time looking for artifacts mainly all iver Central Texas. He even had a native american art and artifacts gallery back in the early 80ís. He passed away in the mid Ď90s and unfortunately my mother got rid of just about everything of value. I ended up w a couple of small cases of arrowheads that Iíve had stashed away for 20 years. Hereís one someone told me was a pretty good one.

I've never found one long like this one before
Thought it was pretty cool. It was broken, but laying like it was one piece.

I'm going to guess that it is a unfinished something.

Being a knapper they probably stopped because of the stack (ridge) on the right but from the looks of it in the pics it seems it could be removed from the little white point on the left sideÖ I donít have it in my hand but it seems that way.

Either way very cool find!

Found this one that I think is the bottom half of bigger knife or point.
