Cody Knife 9,000-8,400 B.P.
Cody knives are single, but occasionally double-shouldered, stemmed knives with offset tip to one lateral side. One side tends to be nearly vertical with the opposite side close to parallel at stem, then at shoulder edge runs a straight diagonal to the opposite lateral edge. They have irregular to parallel percussion or pressure-flaking with pressure retouch along the margins, with small and irregular basal thinning flakes. Frison, G.C.
