I been pressure flaking slabs a lot lately so tonight I decided to do something different.
I just picked up some flakes, gravel and a section of broke biface and direct percussion knapped out some preform for some Cahokia points. The last one I worked was the gravel on the right and I don't know if it's gonna make a Cahokia. I had a good preform with it and I should have stopped, but one hit led to another until I pretty much kilt it.

Heres first flake then I decided to do them as a group

Nice points guys. I broke a tip off while attempting one a couple days ago. Will post a photo soon. Turned out a little too short and wide. Rick B

I finished the first rock. Just crumbles are left.
But I could get one long enough to make a POTM. It is a bit under 2" so still not long enough I guess.
The base corners don't exist because it would made the point more shorter.
Next time hopefully a better one...

Nice B2W

Great participation last month. Now the hard part. Someone needs to post a new point for a new month.

Just to keep it going I'll throw a simple stem point out there. I'm sorry I don't know names of points. If someone else wants to throw one out there go right ahead.
