We are a couple weeks past, but I figured that I would wait until after Easter.  And now that it is after Easter, please feel free to jump in to this trade.  Last time, our numbers were a little bigger.  Let's keep that trend going.  

Anyone is welcome.  It honestly doesn't matter if you started yesterday or have a YouTube Channel of flintknapping, it's fun to trade with another knapper.

I am in like flint.  Or flynn.  I think both are acceptable.

I've been chomping at the bit to do my first pith! I'm in a knapping slump so maybe this will help bring me out of it. Just got a fresh box of rocks in the mail today so I'm well prepared!

I'm in!

A bad day hunting arrowheads is better than a good day at work anytime.

A message for the lurkers: If you're into knapping and can chip out a basic point, make an account and sign up for this. Its not a contest.. This is a great opportunity to exchange your work with another and potentially aquire some lithic rock you'd have NO way to get otherwise. If you think you're not good enough etc etc, trust me when I say you're pretty much going to feel like that indefinitely..thats just part of chipping. We critique our own work with vengeance. So come on and lets do this.

If this is Ok with Nogie, I will donate two extra points with a few small rocks to go along with the points. I will send these to the two newest participants. This will be over and above the PITH. You get my point, but you do not have to send me one. Just make sure you do send one to the person you are paired with in the regular drawing.

Thanks for your generosity, WA!! 

Again, for anyone reading this, you don't have to be an experienced knapper.  This is about fun and checking out other people's work.  Don't be shy.

I will leave this open for a couple more days.  I'm hoping for some late entries.

I have not made time to keep up with the post in the general knapping section lately. Glad I did this morning, count me in if I'm not too late.
I'm kind of puzzled why we don't have a lot more participation.
This is only the second one for me but other than the post office debacle, I thought it was great fun and a chance to meet someone new and from a different part of our great country.
I would like to encourage all knappers to join, new and advanced. It's only one point and who knows you might actually enjoy it.

To follow William's lead I will give a delrin and copper insert pressure flaker to the next two who join in.

Thankyou Stacyharmon for the generous offer.
I just haven't been online much lately and  would have gotten in anyways.
I didn't even take time to read the posts and learn about your offer before I posted so I had to go back and see what this was about.
Not that I wouldn't want a pressure flaker made by you, but I think William made his offer to the two newest knappers to join, not the next two. So, with that said I feel like a newer knapper should get the flaker.
I appreciate the offer and I think you and William both a speshull for making such offers to share like y'all have done to increase participation and help out others at the same time.

Okay, so I pulled names this morning and here is what I ended up with:

nogie1717 ---------- boletus
Chippintuff ------------ catfishwilly

and that leaves 3 names.  If it's okay with you three, I'll put you in a wheel:

StacyHarmon will send a point to willjo
willjo will send a point to 1442
1442 will send a point to StacyHarmon

Contact your partners and get to chippin!!

Nogie, it looks like you missed WillmcUtah. Double check. I could be wrong.

Well, Dang! I had my fingers crossed for a killer fish hook.

JUST KIDDING.
willjo you have a pm. I got a good start on my pith tonight although it was rather difficult with my lab running in and out of the garage squeaking his tennis ball.
