The Flint Gods have been fickle and capricious since Lucy was a pup and now they're old and grumpy on top of that, as you have discovered. But there's one constant with them. They just want to see their bounty of sharp edges put to the work they were intended for. So don't put all your products in a display case. USE them. Make blades to use on a daily basis for all your cutting needs. Hunt with stone points. Chop wood with a stone ax. And if a point is destined for the display case, at least scratch your arms with both edges. These are sacrifices to the Flint Gods and, if you don't give them willingly like this, they will take what they think is fair payment (including back interest) out of parts of your body you'd rather not sacrifice.nogie1717 wrote:
Bullethead, thanks and even though my wife thinks it's laughable to get hurt chipping, I can attest that it is no laughing matter. A little rest and awareness to stop at the first sign of pain should help me move forward.
It's the gravel that makes our finished points that much sweeter!!
