Like riding a bike, but harder
« on: January 03, 2021, 08:31:21 pm »
Hahaha I almost got it! Havenít knapped in a little bit. Chased a hinge and a twist until I was a bit narrow and then I snapped my tip off. But at least itís not gravel. My goal for the year is to knap a lot more!
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short. Amen.

Nice recovery!  Just flake away everything that doesn't look like an arrowhead :KN? )P(

Good to see your making flakes again tracker.

Funny how much bigger they look in your head when you start on them.

All of mine I think will end up much bigger and then I watch as they get narrower and narrower. I need to just pick my hinges off rather than shooting over shots through em from the other side. Iíve been playing mind games but I still think flint knapping is the best puzzle!

I very much agree with the mind games and puzzle. If my brain isnít ready for it thereís no since even trying.

Haha it seems quite a few members from a few years ago took a break. Maybe 2021 can be the year of the caveman!

Year of the Caveman, huh?  I like it, to heck with the Year of the Ox for the Chinese New Year, coming up.   ;D
