This fully-grooved axe was found near Beattie, Kansas in Marshall County. The axe, used as a woodworking tool, was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1929. Axes like these are made by pecking a hard stone into a rough shape and then grinding and polishing it into its final state. They get their name from the hafting groove, which fully encircles the axe body.
