I am a big fan of Smoky Hills Jasper. I’m hoping I ID that one correctly. Regardless, you knocked that one out of the park!!

the "kansas brown" blade is nice. i think i have one or two pieces of that material and haven't been willing to use them because i keep waiting until i get better to get the best result from them. 

the green dot beside your username shows you that you're logged in/online.

Is Niobrara from Nebraska?   Seems there is a watershed named that there.   Flint Hills chert maybe Kay County and further east, Burlington into Missouri?   Nice job regardless of what you call the stone.   Did it need any heat treating or used as is?  I'm from Kansas  originally but don't recall if Smoky Hill runs all the way from Hays, Ft. Wallace to Abiline.    There used to be a Knap In near or on the Maxwell Game Reserve between Lindsborg and Newton.   Is it still going on?   The jasper we find along the Front Range of Colorado is yellowish-tan with black specks.  What you using for percussion, sandstone, antler or copper?
