Figured I would start this one, kinda like the Hill style bow threads, to showcase knapping work.

My first, from an obsidian preform.

Better than any that I've attempted.

Looking good!

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.

Nice work Robert. Knapping around other knappers is a great way(the best way) to learn knapping.

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.
