Let's see your tool kit -Copper, Abo, Otherwise-

What are your core tools, in other words, just your primary/daily drivers. I ask for just the primary/beating-heart of your toolkit, in order to keep the thread clean, and the posts straight forward. Share in a picture, preferably just one, with the tools all in the frame.  I thought this might be a...

I stayed up late last night and made a couple pieces.
first one was a hunting point that a edge crushed on near the tip and caused a bad spot on that edge that I couldn't remove.

Re: What Have You Broken Today?

Thanks ndoghouse. Yah it sucks, but that's the game right? Aha. Thought I'd post the progression pics I took for that Dalton I posted. Spalled with a solid copper hammer from a large 17 pound piece of Oceanwave agate rough. Cooked. Direct percussion, indirect to finish the faces. 1510352003fotor_151...
