Telepathic Flint Ridge Knife

Wish I could really be there. Had to knap with you all telepathically.

Got this stone from Frank at Marshall. Was kinda a smurgisboard bucket it was in.

Thanks John. I was pretty happy with my percussion work on this one. It's hard to see by the pictures.
I like the wild turkey leg stand. I had it setup for a different Knife, but I liked it with this one better. The sun was just poking through my window and illuminating this spot. It really gave some depth perception and showed some of the flaking.

Just got back from Flintridge. Had a good visit with Outback Bob. Didn't buy much rock but did flint knap a couple of points. My first doing any knapping in 6 months as I had other priorities. Did get my Norwood hunting point finished up and ready to attach to an arrow.

Really glad you got to the Ridge Jon. Sure would of liked to have been there. So many I'd love to meet and make some flakes with. Bob is certainly on my list.
Glad your back home safe now. It's nice to feel your presence here on the PA site again. Sure hope someone took some pictures.
