  • Need some spalls and/or bifaces, knapping rock, etc.

    I need some knapping rock, preferably flint or chert, not Obsidian. I am not sure what you would want from me trade wise, but I have some Bison teeth, antler, some furs, deer hide, etc. I also have a block of pipestone too.


    I know that basically I am asking the three or four people who knap on here for help, but this also applies to those who find some nice sized flint/chert chunks as you walk along.

    Hey Ethan, I am glad to put together a box of chert spalls for you. This will keep you busy for some time. My full payment will be seeing some of your stone art.

    Love eavesdropping in this kitchen, especially when potential new recipes/creations result from collective brainstorming best chefs working with ingredients like bison teeth, asundry animal parts, blocks and spalls cool lithics........

    Thank you, both & AH, for opening finest dining establishment, inviting public, and allowing hungry curious-georges in on inner working sanctums!!

      See?..... that was metaphorical, and even tho in prior post you aw-shucked didn’t get them, you easily understood one! When people who think like that talk with one another, often they try goodnatured one-upmanship, and when they git a-going, that’s “repartee” that I’m always yaying about....

    Just as soon as they clear the fields I will look and break them a little for you. If I send you some I would just ask for the shipping fee and nothing else

      I’m hoping they will finish the cotton this week Rusty (KP) then I will post some in the rock forum. It’s a old site where the ancient people use to cook their stone cobbles

      No it’s a Woodland to Mississippian site they cooked their flint cobbles for knapping points. I actually threw many of them in the weeds before I knew what they were. That’s one of the rules I have to follow in those fields remove all the bigger rocks cause they can damage the tiller.

      Absolutely love y’all !🥰. Prior grumpy member once invited me to “just go play with rocks”; I told him did all the time, but that you guys so much more entertaining!!
