Walking along a small no name stream that runs right through the middle of town today. I look down and find this beauty. I still can't believe it. A full groove axe! Needless to say I was very excited about my find.;-)Anybody else ever find one of these?

Very nice.

Awesome. I never did but I know a place where people find them, spear points and arrow heads too

From: bodymanbowyer

That's an awesome find, better than finding an arrowhead. Kool:-) JF

Man, what a find!! Very, very cool!

That full grove axe, WOW! If only it could talk! What stories it could tell. Year made. By who. Tribe or culture name. Where did the stone come from? What adventures did it have? Did it kill? Game? Humans? Before it was lost in the stream, how many different individuals owned it? Etc., etc.....imagine the stories contained in that stone. Priceless. Great find.

Makes me wonder what I've walked right past ovet the years... You deserve it, just for paying attention!

Well done!

Incredible find, good eye! Since you asked, It seems like maybe two others have found almost identical ones that they posted pics of on here in the last couple years. What a rare treasure!

Nice find! I found this one around 1971 on a bluff a mile or so south of the Hwy 40 Missouri River bridge while stump at Weldon Springs near St. Louis.

Rare finds, indeed. I have found fewer than a dozen in 50 years of searching. Most are Early to Middle Woodland Culture. The examples shown are not weapons or ceremonial. They are everyday tools, much like the axes we use today. Axes or hammers. The time frame is about 800 to 1,500 BP. Certainly artifacts to treasure.

Fantastic find!

From: Chance

Id take it to a museum to find out what i could on it then id have a glass case made for it and put it on display.

Awesome find, and like above ...I would keep looking in the area !

From: Steve Milbocker
Date: 14-Sep-17




Great find! I've got one grooved axe but no where near the quality of that one. Those are some nice pieces gentlemen.

From: Homey88

Great stuff

That's a great find. Earlier this spring I found this along a stream bed in southern Minnesota but I wasn't sure if it was real or not but I picked it up anyway. I would appreciate any info if you have comments.

Super find! How cool is a full groove ax head!

From: TGbow

Tonto, what native American tribe inhabited that area?

Very interesting thread.

From: tonto59
Date: 14-Sep-17




TGbow, They were called The Lenni-Lenape Which mean the Original people or Grandfathers. Most other tribes considered them to be the most Ancient tribe of the North East. Clovis points have been found in New Jersey. I'd like to find one of those!

A smaller one

Beautiful, congrats on a great find!! I've found a lot of different artifacts over the years, but never a grooved axe and It's not from a lack of looking. Thanks for sharing, everybody.

From: Herbie
Date: 14-Sep-17




Finding something like that has got to get you thinking!

From: Matt Ewing
Date: 14-Sep-17




Clyde's is a rare piece 3/4 grooves are hard to find! Great finds guys!

From: tonto59

Nice finds! Clydebow, manybows, and Matt. Thanks for sharing the pictures. That's why if a rock catches your eye pick it up and check it good. You might of found an Indian Axe! Good luck looking everyone.
