    Instead of restoration...

    Instead of restoration...I chose to have a few reproductions done.

    Had this Adena I found earlier this year, 4 1/4" and was seriously considering getting it restored, but kinda liked the character it already had and it was pretty much all there anyways, but got to thinking about what it would have looked like at first stage...

    So I contacted the best knapper I know Harold Elam( for Ohio materials) and he reproduced it for me,
    I told him make it look first stage, mailed him an outline drawn on paper, photos and my guesstimate as to what was missing, esp. from the tip and plow ding....told him to use a light colored Flint Ridge material (of course, like the original).

    River saw what I was doing and was intrigued, so he asked if the T-drill he found could be done as well, so we sent him that info. as well.

    Very happy with outcomes on both, kinda neat to see what the Adena may have looked like first stage and River was absolutely thrilled with the drill....
