Ok the cornertang may have been used as a sickle???? skinnin knife???? Etc. ???
What was the mid back tang used for???
Fancy top of the line hide scraper??
Thanks guys,I appreciate it! The size is 2 3/4 inches in length, and 1 7/8
inches tall. Slightly smaller than most tangs, but that seems to be
consistent with any info I have found on them. It's slightly bigger than
the one shown in the 12th edition of Overstreet on page 647. Mine has a
very unique feathering on the rear obviously done,with very sharp edges on
the top, and lower right sides.I assume it was used for the same purpose as
a cornertang, but made to be hafted differently.
