Here are two recent points on some beautiful Burlington...
Beautiful work Sir!
I need to get back to making more for future use.
I almost have a box of practice stuff to send your way....i also found that ishi stick (Copper tipped pressure flaker) this is the main thing I need to get to you.
Thanks for thinking of me. The box you sent has been very beneficial to my learning techniques. Disheartening to work on a point only to break off an ear while notching it....but I keep after it and get better each attempt. So far none are as good looking as yours.
That's some of the best Burlington I have seen!
@Mailman you interested in a piece of English Black Flint to play with? A friend is sending me some so I can make flints for the Lancaster and Fowler. Do you watch any Youtube vids on Knapping? If so, search for "Flintknapperjimmy"
Another colorful piece. And a Madison point I made with one of my test flakes.
And an Agate Basin style point made with Burlington chert.
Those are some good looking points you are making and some good looking material!
Do modern knappers usually grind points that were historically ground like the agate basin?
Bandit, I did not grind this but I sometimes do. I think it depends on the knapper and the objective. Some people do very good replacations with only antler bone and stone ( what I use ) the guy I learn from does work for some schools who use them for studies and other projects. They need to be as accurate as possible. But I would say, overall most do not. For Alot of knappers it' more about shape and a nice looking flake pattern.
You probably can' tell from the picture, but both the Clovis points in here I ground.
BrewMo, that is some outstanding work! WOW!
If I could only be half as good.
Another Burlington point from today..
I really like that one. The 2 tone looks good.
2 more Burlington points from the other day..
Evidently, the bucks are handing out free flintknapping tools but I have yet to find any..
Is that flecks of quartz I see in the one on the right?
Yes, Burlington can be full of fossils and other inclusions.
besides all the Points, I like that frame, do you stick them in glue?
