I received word today that a north Texas flintknapper Mike Dickson had passed away in July.  Mike attended knap ins mostly in Texas and one in Louisiana.  A quiet knapper and made some of the best home brewed beer you would ever want to drink.  He was a good friend and I will miss him at knap ins. ...

Has anyone ever seen the jig that Rinehart used to make these? I used to see a lot of his grey ghost's at gun shows here in Houston back in the 60's, wished I had purchased a few of them, I think that they were selling for $20-$25 each.
