Hi folks.   As many of you are interested in knapping only with natural materials (stone, bone, antler, horn, ivory, wood, and yes...probably even naturally occurring copper prepared as our aboriginal ancestors could have used), I thought to create a forum specifically for this purpose.

The PaleoPlanet Flintknapping forums have grown beyond our wildest dreams and it has become very difficult to find certain types of discussions among the hundreds of pages of old discussions.   It's time we did another round of separating out certain areas of discussion and this should be a good one to set aside for ease of reference.

I'm going to go to the main forum and search out "abo" knapping discussions and move some over here.  There's far too many pages for me to go all the way back, but I'll try to capture as many as possible - even if it takes some months to do it.

Shout if I can adjust the name of the forum or provide some other sort of feature you might like (I'm constrained a bit by what the Yuku host offers, but I'll try my best to please!).

Great! Happy to hear it.

Got to take a break from searching out and moving old discussions here... my wife is home with some take-out and I'm starving!

As of today, I've gone back about 60 pages in the general forum and copied relevant discussions here (this info is mainly for me so I remember where I was at!).

Thanks for taking the time and going to the trouble, Tom. I do mostly abo knapping, so I'm hoping to learn some things here.

Welcome aboard!  Looks way better than my 3rd or 30th point  But looks aren't what matters, it's the functionality, whether it be to hang around your neck or to stick in an ancestral enemy.  This looks like it's serving its purpose quite well.
