    Sorry to hear that Chase. Although I'm not one of the knappers - I hope it doesn't go the way many of the old manual skills does and disappear. I know we have many knappers on this website so the heritage seems to be in healthy shape. Our condolences to Bob's family and friends.

        Those are the best kinds of craftsmen. The art is in the telling.

            And he had a great article about making Folsom Points in our very own Resource pages. We owe this man a lot. He has educated many people with his demonstrations. http://www.arrowheads.com/index.php/...-folsom-points
