These knives were collected from the Wullscheleger Site in Marshall County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1960 and 1961. The knives may have been hafted onto handles and used as cutting tools. One knife tip is made of Smoky Hill silicified chalk, a good quality knapping material that is exposed in linear beds in northwestern Kansas and western Nebraska. The other five knives are made of Permian chert.

Date: 1-1800 CE
