As always, that is some mighty fine work, 1442!  The US military may be interested in the indestructible nature of that biface.  lol

Thanks catfishwilly fur the comments on the other blade. I probably will not work it any more.
Thankyou to nogie, That's kind of what I was thinking too, like a RCMT ( reusable cruise missle tip ) or sompin.
Heres another one I made tonight from another flour bed rock with a chronic case of issues mostly caused by my bopper not hitting where its sposed to.

NOOOOOOO!!!!!!! WHY!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! What could have been....small seam ended up running the length of the biface and taking the whole rock with it...knapping can be so cruel. haha. I know i havent been around much, ive been swamped with work, its the busy season. im sure ill be back on here more in the spring, but when i broke this biface, all i could think of was this thread.

HA! well thanks Dtala, and 1442. Woulda been nicer as a finished point. I super glued it back together to remember what might have been...then i dropped it and broke it into 3...ahahaha. ah well, i guess that means it was never really meant to be.

that rock just didn't have any ambition to be anything but a rock. 

I finished a beautiful fluted Clovis several years ago. Easily my best Clovis. Walked over to the mantle in the living  room to put it there and dropped it on the brick hearth. You know the rest.....

Well, since I got on the forum anyway, spoze I could post a few things I've made lately. All were bifaced from rough rock or nodules. No slab work.

Yes sir, can't remember exactly, but I don't think I even touched it with a flaker.
