    I used to carve wooden duck decoys... does that mean i couldn't find a real duck ? J/K a little bit. I have no problem with people using their hands to make something , as long as it isn't passed off as ancient. In this case he didn't so kudo's to him. Personally i like it !

    Nothing authentic about that one. If it is, it has been acid washed and then sand blasted.

    AXE TO GRIND!!!!

    This is one of those things that I feel at the end we will be hearing at least I fooled some of you guys on my stuff. I feel like we are a test run before things go on eBay or something? These posts just don't add up anymore.

    Your post was probably deleted because it broke the site rules. Really, don't
    get so upset over small stuff - everyone has got their own way of going about
    things, and raising your own blood pressure won't change a thing. There are
    purists in every endeavor, but not everyone involved as a purist.

    You Sir, are a very wise and good man! God bless you and your secret of hidden items is safe with me. Big smiles, Mogi

    You can bang out a piece like the one you are showing in 10 minutes time. These metamorphic carnival fakes are everywhere now and I am glad because they are terrible and obvious. Mogi, I would like to see you make one out of gabbro or basalt.

    So much negativity..I just don't get it.

    In all honesty (and in full disclosure), I'm not real familiar with the
    flint knapping/tool making world, but to me it seems very cool to
    see a person take a regular old rock and make it into a potentially
    useful tool.

    The impression I get from the negative comments is that people have
    done this in the past, and then pawned it off as a genuine artifact made
    in ancient times. Is that correct? If so, nowhere did the OP (Mogi) say or
    even imply they were going to attempt to sell it or trade it as an authentic
    ancient item.

    Is there so much distrust in the world today that we trust no one, or accuse
    them of wrongdoing when they simply re-created an ancient tool?

    Tried to make a few things myself, and in the process learned that it's not
    only a skill, but an art as well. If I had made that ax I'd be damn proud of it,
    and it would really stink for people to "rain on my parade" if I had posted pics
    of it.

    OTOH, I can see the issue it would rise for the purist collector who is deeply
    involved in the sale/trade/ownership of original, ancient items. That said, it
    becomes an issue when someone wants do make something fun, with no ill
    intent and just for the heck of it. It's certainly not worth questioning the
    integrity of another when there is no evidence whatsoever that they intend
    the slightest deception.

    Which leads to...it's really not worth getting worked up over.
