Brian that big one is nice and sharp. Thanks pappy I have definitely been enjoying all my flintknapping practice lol.
Today I only made one but I made it for my wife. I thought she would love the colors and we don't really have the money for gifts this Valentine's day.

Well Iím sure you have a very soft heart of stone.

I gave my wife two hearts connected by an arrow passing through them that I cut out of scrap wood on my little bandsaw.

She still has it and it is one of her favorite gifts.

Iím sure she will love it.

Musky you are already further than I was for how long you've been at it, I expect great things from you. Brian it was more of a weary sigh lol

BJ if you wanna learn how to chase your own mistakes back and forth across a piece I'm your guy lol. I lost the battle today and broke way more pieces than I made. The cahokia I broke twice. Musky Flint ridge is what you'd have  plus whatever else is in Ohio. Projectile points.net is a good resource for Knappable material. You can find it by state and region. This rock came from Missouri and as far as I know I'm the only one that has it. I named it calico jasper, this is my third time naming it, I didn't like the other 2.
