Thanks all, on the knapping! It just gets in your blood after awhile ;D. Now I'm rolling all kinds of weird idea's around in my head, hmm - what else might one make :D............

 I wasn't planning on hauling a trailor to Pappy's but may have to with Bodark, was going to bring a load of this TX flint already. I'm going to check this guys ten acres out and if theres anything worth cuttin - billet length, whatever - I'ma gittin it ;D. Said he's dozing it down anyway and planting some kind of purty trees....

Paul:  Is that some rock that you picked up on the job site, or do you carry a supply of heat treated rock with you when you travel?  Those are very nice, and if you worked it raw, very, very, very nice.   ;D.

Thanks Paris ;D ;D. My girls are eat up with that Miley, uh whatever the rich kids name is stuff too :).
 Hey Mike, those shown are treated. I carry a bucket with me on the road just in case I catch some slack time - I'm trying to get another set of arrows put together for Spring turkey, need ta hurry. I did make a coupla points from the rock on jobsite here - tough stuff but makes some nice points.
 Thanks Pappy - maybe I can give ya some pointers ;D in a cupple of months...

Wow! Lot's of movin going on :D. I'm happy to see this new section - help keep things organized.

 Still winded out here and still hammerin on rocks ;D. Found this nice looking specimen laying around in the desert, hehheh. Remembered seeing some of these somewhere so got busy on my new paperweight - gotta do some more of those :).

OK, now I'm confused as to what I'm looking at.  :-[  .  Is that how you rough out a point?

That's how you might start one Mike - gives ya a better purchase on the stone while working on the point :D.
 As a matter of fact - I got started on another one and had Folsom in mind, but that rock needs a little heat :P. Did make another handy dandy utility knife...
 Allright, I'm outa here - my butt has become as one with the chair, 50mph desert winds have about heat treated me, and I'm bleadin everywhere :'( ;D.

Flint/chert - same thing. This is all Pederanales flint around here - some's good, some's baaaad ;D.

Got to thinking about that on way to room Hillbilly, I was thinkin Dalton and Folsom came out for some reason - now that'd be a trick 8).
