    Spokesgave or broken blade?

    Just one more artifact Im curious about! This 2 1/2 (creek find, Jackson Co Missouri) artifact looks like a broken point, but it being so concave at the point of question makes me question it. The broken area is relatively flat but at a small angle, giving it a relativ sharp edge. Any thoughts? I appreciate everyone who helps me out in my posts!

    It does not look intentionally broken to me. I'd say not a spokeshave.

    I have to agree with Terry. I'm not seeing a Spokeshave in that piece.

    Check out this link. It has some nice examples of them in it.
