A nearly identical stone to this resided on the hearth of my grandmother's house for many years. I held it in my own hand many times. It was always
described to me as a "tomahawk that my great uncle found plowing a field". This was in Eastern North Carolina...Pitt County. The stone itself was a
gray color and very smooth. The front "edge" was smooth and rounded. The back edge was sharpened to a dull blade. It sported the same groove. I
would say it was probably 2/3 the size of this one. My grandmother passed away in 2008, but I believe my cousin got this stone. I will see what I can
do about photographs.
