It worked really well for being hafted on the wrong side of the handle. :lol:

Great video as always Jess. Wow cannot believe the Island is that clear. Floods must have really washed it clean.

Thanks Scott.
It doesn't help that the entire island is a bedding ground for deer. Every bit of grass is laid down in one direction or the other.

Sound like a hunting license and bow tag are in order. Bed down and wait them out.

Damn good post Jesse. I've never tried my hand at flint napping either. Think the axe turned out good and had some use, definitely way better then I would have been able to pull off :lol: . Doubles as a hammer and a weapon too if u needed it for that. my area is pretty flint poor but im going to be down in san antonio this weekend and i know hill county is full of that stuff. may grab a few chuncks an give it a shot. thanks for the video

I really didn't do much. I already had an idea of how to get the shape I wanted and that I needed some lashing points. Kinda just winged it from there. I'll be trying again for sure.

What area are you in? Ive got a box of chert that im never touching again. I learned pretty fast that if the goal is to turn big rocks into piles of dust and flakes, then im a Bada** at some flint knapping! Also, razor sharp flakes pounded off in the back yard will magically appear in your living room carpet. And you only find them with bare feet.
