This knife is a copy of those likely used in the southeastern U.S. during the middle-Archaic period around 5,000 years ago. The blade is quartz with a short stem and it's secured to a wooden handle with pine sap glue over which it's wrapped with a thin strip of braintanned buckskin. The stand is custom made to display the knife, and is made of Georgia Bald Cypress with forks of dogwood. Making this blade was tricky due to the crystalline composition of quartz.  It doesn't lend itself to finely crafted tools like flint does.  Even still, it was heavily utilized by people living in Georgia and other eastern states for thousands of years.  This knife would have been a coveted tool back then, as this knife represents the higher end of mid-Archaic flintknapping skill.  Most mid-Archaic tools I've found on archaeological digs are usually thick, quite crude, and are broken from heavy use. Very few modern flintknappers are capable of knapping quartz, but I've always wanted to learn how to work it since the old guys did.  This is a unique knife that ressurects the often overlooked prehistoric cultures of the southeastern U.S. 

Knife length- 7 1/4 inches.  Stand length- 9 1/2 inches.
