The knapping diary of a mad man...
« on: April 03, 2018, 12:39:09 pm »
Since I make so many points at times, I figured I'd just create a thread where I can post them all without cluttering up the board.

4 from yesterdays chilly fireside knapping session. Black oil chert, a mostly cortex piece of hornstone, a overshot hunk of Rainy, and a really nice piece of Buffalo River.

Guns have triggers. Bicycles have wheels. Trees and bows have wooden limbs.

Really like your stuff bowmo. Very nice scar patterns. I'm still not there yet.

You really do have a touch for those scar patterns.  I've tried before to consolidate my stuff but don't seem to stick to it! 

Looking forward to seeing how it progresses for you.

Haha. Thanks guys!

Parnell: It's all credited to the magic of using an Ishi stick right. Took me a year or so to figure out the mechanics of how to use my body in relation to the stick but when you finally get it right and learn how to make the right kind of bevel on your continuous platform it's all good.

Nice work!  Helps to be warm while chipping, carving, and making bows and arrows!

Well here's everything I've managed to chip so far in 2018. Really wish the temps would climb out the 30's here!
