17-378 Decatur Fractured Base Point

$18.00

17-378 Decatur Fractured Base Point made from heat treated Flint Ridge chert. These Early Archaic corner notch points of the “Kirk Series” have a unique feature. A small notch was made in the center of the base as a stop to prevent overshooting of the two burin flakes that were sent in from the corners to facet the basal edge. This formed a flat edge which mated with the flat in the bottom of a square nock cut in the shaft to receive the point. When glued and lashed this made for a very stable haft for a point with such a short stem. The stem edges are also fractured down into the notches! This is a fairly large specimen for the type and has beveled edges and some serrations.  Length, 3 5/8 inches. Price, $18.
