These six Ramey knives are typical examples. They
represent the "classic" shape very well. Five of them
are from Illinois and the second one from the right is
reported to have been found in Rhea County, Tennessee.
Some Ramey knives are bi-pointed but most are rounded
or are unfinished on the basal ends. The average size for
Ramey knives is between 6 and 9 inches (15.2 and 22.9 cm)
long. Most Ramey knives are made of Mill Creek chert.
These six Ramey knives range in
