Thanks Catfishwilly! That's a pretty nice pair of twin points you got there. Good stuff guys. Man I don't like that the switch to Tapatalk made the thread pages shorter. Used to be 21 posts if I'm not mistaken. Ah well. Does anyone know if swateramike is still on?

Thanks for compliments, here is a set of twins for y'all. Same material out of Hill country TX. One on right is 1 year old and the one on the left is couple 100 or 1000 years old. . Both are translucent.

Thanks ndoghouse. Yah it sucks, but that's the game right? Aha. Thought I'd post the progression pics I took for that Dalton I posted. Spalled with a solid copper hammer from a large 17 pound piece of Oceanwave agate rough. Cooked. Direct percussion, indirect to finish the faces.

Nope, that is GT black. Got lucky one run and got some killer black, super tough until you cook it. Thanks for the compliment. If you notice the top pick was before I fixed it. I just couldn't get it to look right. So I ask issuk@banjo for some advice, and the second pic was the result. I think he called it a San Gabriel archaic blade.

First indirect percussion point. Maybe a Marcus? I think I've seen old ones like this. Thin enough that I couldn't really get it to focus on the edge. Surprised myself .
