Up in Washington state for work and discovered the Puget Sound Knappers group. They had a cabin fever knap in yesterday, so I went. The nice grey dacite point on left was a gift from one of the founders, Dr. Joe Higgins. I flaked out the other two obsidian points. The big one was from a slab, the smaller one was a chip.
Keep your very first percussion point and first pressure flaked point. And in a year or two make a comparison. That's what I did and I was surprised at my progression. I have them in the center of my "so called" keeper case,lol. I am still a rock breaker but am coming along and you will to if you keep at it. I am older and a much slower learner.
I see you are also a former Marine, semper fi.
