aint nothin like breakin raw rock...but your right its freaken hard man...real hard and frustrating and not to mention you need a deep pocket for matierial...because you will burn through a lot....lol
I pick up very old rocks.....
nothing special here, and i should have used georgetown for this practice, but the only goal was smooth thinning, with a result of 5mm thickness or less all over. there seems to be kind of a natural "barrier" almost in how thin i can get things that are larger than bird points or folsoms or that kind of thing. but i haven't really pushed the envelope of it much. this piece is 4.5-5mm all over. and i'm just talking about making stuff starting with a thicker piece. if you start with a very thin flake, then of course the piece will be very thin, but the question is will it be bi-facially flaked and have any strength? i want to work more on that. my son keeps finding stuff that keeps challenging my concepts of what's achievable with various techniques and materials.

Took advantage of a beautiful afternoon to whoop on some rocks. Took my wife and daughter trail riding yesterday afternoon and earned some knap time. Horses behaved and we had a great time.
The little red Hardin and Decatur are from cooked Buffalo river creek cobbles, and the Lost Lake is from raw.
