Wow...time can really get away from me.

Went to Devils Hole Knap In recently and of course forgot to take pictures other than a few points I made while there and a Mustache I forgot to post when I made it last month.

Thanks bowmo I needed that. Do you mind if I ask what your billet is made of and what you use for tip in your flaker? Man you sure have this figured out. Just beautiful.

Thanks guys.

bjrogg the billet is some kind of river stone that was just shaped that way and the tip of that hand flaker is antler I shapped into a little dowel.

After watching a couple guys really school some rock with a long antler indirect stick I decided to finally make one and work on my heavy indirect skills. The stick is cane and the antler is a solid all the way thru whitetail tine I strike with the osage billet. Worked better for me than I thought it would. The two points were made incorporating the stick a lot on both.
