    Ok a couple of mistakes, This is not my "First Point" should have said "First Post".

    Re: Knapped Noviculite Point, First Point

    Thanks Robin,

    I started "surface collecting" points, back in early 1970s when I was in 9th grade in high school, and have always had a intrest in how they were made.

    I have been knapping seriously, for about 11 years, and I currently teach several flintknapping classes a year. Flint knapping is really not that hard, or as complicated as some try to make it. I really enjoy the teaching part, and, as I often tell my students, "I can teach, well "ABOVE" my own ability". (ha, ha) Anyway, most of my students can come away with a "usable" point after their first class.

    PS, I just got a new camera that takes much better macro pictures.

    Best Regards,
    3creeks

    HI 3creeks, again.
    I don't know how to put pictures on the computer yet and don't have a good
    camera.
    The one of me in the Avatar, was one that someone else put on for me,
    and took.
    Anyway theres lots of good learning on www.youtube.com
    where you can put in Flintknapping ETC.
    I been doing it for 28 years now and used to do shows, & fairs ETC.
    I also do big things Spears & Tomahawks ETC Arrows and I also make Bows.
    Im out west and theres lots of Obsidian, here and its easy to work and makes nice sharp points. " Very Sharp points" !!!
    I'ev also worked Jasper and Opel from Austraila.
    Well keep up the fine work my friend, your doing great !

    Robin
