These five Harahey knives were recovered from the Buresh Site, 14SR303, a Middle Ceramic village site in Sumner County. Harahey knives are diamond shaped and sharpening and resharpening causes them to be alternately beveled. The pink color is a result of being heat-treated, a technique to improve the knappability of the Permian chert.

Date: 1000 CE-1500 CE
