Flint Blade Core with Will-Lord

Posted on


Will Lord Making Blade with Quartzite and deer antler hammers.
Setting up a core is the most costly part of the exercise removing damaged material from glacial activity and setting up the form, once this is done all the flakes are cast down the crest from the top of the core, if using the stone age techniques then each intended flake must be prepared prior to release from the top by abrading the edge back so the bulb from the previous release doesn't cause the dorsal end of the flake to be overhanging and weak.
