These five alternately beveled knives were found in Russell County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2015. Repeated sharpening on the knife's alternate sides created the bevels. There is one heat treated Florence chert knife (top row, right). All of the other knives were manufactured on Smoky Hill Silicified Chalk, which outcrops in western Kansas. All of the knives are fragments with the exception of the pink colored one on the bottom row.
