Allibates buffalo hunter
« on: June 14, 2019, 11:38:42 pm »
This started out as a six inch slab. Large cracks on both ends caused me to work it down to about 3-1/4" before the first flute took a half inch off the tip. The second flute terminated perfectly to a paper thin point so I am really happy about that.

Awesome 1442. Can you show pictures looking down base towards point? I'm thinking those have to be so thin. :)

Beautiful point
Would you happen to have a close up pic of the nipple before itís fluted?

Have you ever tried fluting using axial compression ?
Iíve seen it done a Wolfe was times & have experimented with it a lil.  I want to try it more.  I just donít like snapping points in half.
