Citronelle dagger!
« on: March 30, 2019, 03:43:01 pm »


I had an aha moment yesterday and figured out how to pressure flake.  At least a little ways.  It seems to take an awful lot of inward pressure that I wasnít using previously.  Anyways, I was able to fashion this dagger today.  I know itís not to the standards of most on this site but I am pretty proud of this one.

It was a skinny flat piece of citronelle.  The blade in basically unifaced and still has most of the cortex on the opposite side.  It is very sharp with the serrations.
