  • Another Tiger Chert Point

    On this point I kept the pressure flakes small so as to not knap over the percussion work. It's a 3.5 inch Point.

    That's rediculously beautiful in it's simplicity. Is it as thin as it looks? If so, That just makes it more impressive, Ron....thanks for sharing.👍

      Thanks Jason, It's not real thin; about one quarter inch.

    Ron - Just going on appearances, that lithic looks like it would be hard to work. The percussion flaking doesn't seem to be really well defined as it is in some of the lithic you've shown? I like it.

            Hey Chase, The spall was banded but on this piece the bands don't show after taking flakes off. I have a big rock that has good bands all the way through the rock.

              The Percussion flake scars are quite large on this point.
              This simple gif file outlines them.
              The flakes from the right of the picture overlap the
              percussion flakes from the left.

                That’s wild. The overlapping leads to an asymmetrical blade, but I guess if you do the same on the other side, it is then asymmetrically semmetric??
