A little fun with mushrooms
« on: January 20, 2024, 02:49:34 pm »
Howís that go? Iím like a mushroom Put me in a dark hole, feed me?

I know a few people that like to hunt them through. They like having a little stone knife. I think they are going to like this design.

Nice - you better hurry and apply for a patent on that handle.

I honestly was thinking that before I posted this.

Thank you Muskyman. Itís something I got in a trade with Patrick aka Jack Crafty. I think he said it was raw Texas chert. Itís pretty tough stuff. Knaps pretty good but I had a little trouble with the inclusion and fossils. It has some steps and thicker spots. Sharpens up nice though. I think the natural earth tones go good for this design.

I tried to look at the best one yet you posted but for some reason my phone puts post in a different format and I canít see your picture or reply. Maybe after someone posts a reply it might change back. Glad you had some success.

I made a lot of biface when I got the hang of it. I kept making them and then later I tried to thin them. That helped me learn one step at a time

Iíve got some obsidian 3-6 inch spauls I bought. And was gifted some obsidian. Also have some Georgetown thatís 2 to about 4 or 5 inches. The flint is tuff and you have to whack the crap out of it and obsidian as you know you just got to give it a little whack. Iím going to try and work on some of the bigger stuff Iíve already tried and failed on with my indirect. Iím learning slowly and starting to get a few things figured out.

I think this must be one of the Black Morels.

Iím not sure if I like this color combination as much, but itís one nasty, wicked sharp sticker. Itís certainly one of my nicer points.
