Description

This flintknapped obsidian knife is designed and created by Dale Duby. Each knife is a one of a kind art piece and is individually handcrafted from stone and bone. This knife is made using an elk jaw for the handle, and also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity that is signed by the artist and hand crafted wooden stand

Through eons of time, man has made his tools from stone. From simple bone smashing hand held choppers (for acquiring bone marrow) to more elaborate fluted clovis spear and atlatl points to more modern arrowheads. Any type of stone was used that could be managed into a desirable size and shape and have a sharp edge. Jasper, agate, flint, and basalt are just a few of these materials.

The most prized of materials for prehistoric stone tool development was the volcanic glass known as obsidian. Obsidian from the Western United States has been found in the shape of prehistoric artifacts across much of the North American continent.
