This unique bone tool was recovered during excavations at Fool Chief's Village, a Kansa village site in Shawnee County. Fool Chief's Village was the site of the 2012 Kansas Archeology Training Program, though excavations continued into 2013. The two parts of the bone tool refit. The tool was made with a metal tool and a very sharp metal tool was used to incise the decorative pattern on both sides. The tip and sides are heavily worn by a soft material.

Date: 1830-1844
