Nice work green knapper! That is a neat color green. What broken object did you get the glass to make that out of?

And some flaking practice I thought I would show before breaking or annihilating the pattern.

Nice nogie! That Burlington is good looking stuff too. Show that again after you annihilate the pattern.

Thanks. That was a big green bottle, it was from either champagne or sparkling cider.

Made a few in between  the cold and slightly warmer weather. The two small ones are Obsidian and the big one and the pink one is Coastal Plain chert. The knife looking point was made that way because I wanted to save the white on the edge.100_5642.JPG

Made an Allendale style point similar to the local points we find. I had some nice spalls of coastal plain chert and cooked it up. Temperature 550 for around 8 hours and material turned out really well
