40 hour knife 'video link added'
« on: December 20, 2014, 12:14:08 am »
 Ok i'm not sure how many working hours i have in this knife but its a freaking lot at least 25+
Started the handle and realized the 1st blade i knapped was not worthy so i had this one large preform of some high grade Tx stuff that Woody Blackwell gifted me at North G.A about 4 years ago. Well i dont have the dexterity i used to so i had to isolate every single platform.
 The handle took the longest, that banded slate is some hard #$@&! It banded slate , chola cactus, set in with epoxy and a brain tanned deer skin thong wrapped around the base.

WOW!

Thanks guys, I was trying to beat the clock to get it finished. I had no time to sit down and admire it. It was still warm when i packaged it and made it to the post office 4 mins before they closed!
 But i took a min to take a short video on it with my cell phone. I'll try and get a link posted.

Time, dedication, cuts, tons of broken rock, a wife, and perhaps a few girlfriends are some of what it takes in becoming a skilled flint knapper!!!
