This alternately beveled knife was recovered by Kansas Historical Society archeologists from an archeological site in Cowley County. Repeated sharpening on the knife's alternate sides created the bevels. The knife is made of local Flint Hills region chert that has been heated to improve the knapping quality of the chert.

Date: 1500-1800 CE
