Went abo the other day. Buffalo river. 1519102118222143504955.jpg Really enjoyed the moose billet percussion. I missed having my copper flaker for platform prep and isolation but substituted nicely with small hard hammerstone and rough soft hammerstone. Crooked dull whitetail tine finished the point off while simultaneously making my hand sore.

My feelings too. Going back in time when making primitive tools makes me feel so far away from today's dependency on our throw-away society. It makes me sad and upset to se all that people throw away . I am retired and make it my duty to take some of the cast offs and re-cycle or re-purpose them. I have saved  many bicycles from the landfill. My wife is getting upset that I bring one or two home every week. All most need is air in the tires . I fill the tires and put them on a pallet by my driveway entrance. Someone always takes them,  hopefully for kids ! Flat screen TVs are showing up now too. I have learned to fix them and I now have 3 big ones in my home. You tube has some great fix-it posts. I digress !  Back to my hobbies and re-purposing ! Mother Earth is calling  to me!

A piece of English flint I received from daver. For the first time, I churched it up by putting canola spray on it. Amazing how much it hides the little fingernail hinges.
