Really nice bowmo. Nice assortment of styles and colors to. I'm ready for it to warm up to. Only good thing is I don't have to mow lawn yet. Heck half the time it's still covered with snow.

Those are some nice looking points.
Was the oil chert a bugger to knap?

That's a lot of work done, already.  Really like those red Daltons on the right.  I think I'd be able to recognize one of your points if they were in a pile!

Very nice bowmo. Like Steve said I think I could pick those scare paterns out of a pile. Really can see how well you plan out and execute you work. Thanks for sharing

You guys sure are good at throwing compliments around  ::)

Here's a couple more. A few of my best length flutes taken with an Ishi stick. And a Hixton point I made yesterday.

I think your going to see a few more thrown around bowmo. Man those are just plain sweet. Is that last one quartz? Makes me realize how much I have to learn yet.

Thanks guys.

bjrogg: That's Hixton which comes from Wisconsin. It's "silicified sandstone" and a lot like fine grained quartz.

Bowmo, are you using copper or antler or both?  Paul

Eye candy.  I'd be very interested to see what you've got setup for your Ishi stick and your fluting technique.

Thanks guys.

Paul: I use both for pressure flaking and punching but I mostly just use antler and stone.

Parnell: I'll try and remember to take some pics or a video.
