Shout out to Texas! First Texas tab I've ever worked. Got it in a trade with Papaxfour. I sure wish I had more of it.

You did that TX tab justice. Nice looking point. Don’t you just love those tabs. Since there was so much cortex on that Flint River, I’ll look around and send you some hoping it won’t have as much cortex. May throw in a couple more tabs for you to play with.

That is well balanced, symmetrical and has a fine edge to it. Great job.

Ok,
Both of these are Flint Ridge. I was experimenting a little with the deer antler on the hafting part. I cut both ways down the antler but kept it very tight so if needed i can just roll the blade as needed to fit the handle differently and its a quick way to switch out the blade points later on. The little scalpel one is just in some bamboo.
I still plan to wrap the antler but im undecided atm.
Hope you enjoy!

Brandon

Thanks for your time,

Well I decided to go with all white on the handle I think it looks decent.

Here’s an attempt at an Adena point. It is from a piece of Novaculite.

Lost Lake-Ross Hybrid theme. This came from a piece of banded dacite (@PaleoSoul), and the front half of a broken Crump preform, took me a long Time to make and when it snapped, I kind of did too; but in the end, I got something out of it! Antler pressure was used for the preform, but finishing the upper half was done with copper. Not switching back to copper, just found a new strategy that results in overshoots instead of steps (!) that I use every now and then. I have not hit some obsudian and dacite in what seems like forever.

A piece of Novaculite from boletus. This was the second piece I worked. It is very friendly stone. Hammerstone and antler billet reduction, finished with a tine pressure flaker. I copied the base of an Agate Basin cast.

1/4" copper horizontal punch off continuous platforms. i think the material might be a hunk of oregon jasper from jim hopper but i'm never certain about anything anymore because i have too many wonderrocks.

Great work both Nogie and Freeze. I hope to one day experiment with all the different kinds of stone. I also need to work on my picture backgrounds, tired of simply taking one in my hand or over the bed.

Thanks, VAKnapper. While a nice setting/good background can make a persons knapping look better, it also brings out the beauty of the stone. But it’s probably more about my self image than giving a cloudy piece of Novaculite it’s due. :)
