When it comes to Ancient Axes, most of us are familiar with the 1/2 groove, 3/4 groove, full groove, the rare double grooved - but has anyone ever seen a a doube 90 degree angle 3/4 groove? I think this could go down as a one of a kind - as many creatively salvaged artifacts can.
This is one of the stranger salvaged stone relics I have come across. Many of my customers and friends know that I am very intrigued by anciently salvaged artifacts, and while some people go from table to table at shows looking for G-10's at a good buy - I tend to scour the junk boxes and bargain bins for some ancient salvage that someone has missed.
I ran into Matt Rowe from Oklahoma at a show down in Arkansas this spring, and he had this beauty. We scratched our heads trying to figure out the story behind the strange shape, and I decided on the spot that I had to talk him out of this one. How can anyone pass up such a ... a... well, ok - its not exactly a beauty - but it sure looked cool - and no doubt, a subject of an ancient salvage job.
