    Curio knives - what are they?

    Could be :). I'm looking for an image of a similar blade shape but coming up short. Most shellfish knives seem shorter, handier and pointier. It's as good an answer as any :emoji_shrug:

    Curio knives - what are they?

    Abraham Darby kettle cauldron pot

    I'm far from an expert & echo the advice on seeking museum input. One thing that may help identify early Darby pots is that they were sectionally cast (cast in pieces and then joined together).

    It's truly stunning & beautifully knapped too. I confess to mounting it to a pin & wearing it on my jacket

    Wanted Stuart Mitchell Sgian Dubh

    Stone Age Tools

    You might like this too, sent to me by friends in ASI Australia. They knap Mookaite Jasper. I love this arrow head they made me & wear it on my jacket. I don't know if it's THE prettiest stone to knap, but it must be a contender! Mookaite flint knapped arrow head by English Countrylife, on Flickr
