Out of interest, where do you advertise your wares?

I don't! I have only sold some this summer at archaeological events (two!), It's my "coming out" as a flint knapper after all these years! Will try e-bay at some point...

Right then here we have the usual suspects, bad side up (there's always one side better than the other!) Number 1 is 50mm long and number 5 is 30mm long, I personally would go for 2, 3 or 4.
5 has good notches but is rather shallow in the flakes and has a lot of the parent flake showing unmodified. Take your pick!

I don't know if this is of any help or use. I have a little webshop where I sell detecting stuff I make.

I've considered selling some arrowheads on it as well (little display boxes). But am happy to let anyone else display the odd item. Let me know what you think about the idea.

Hey, long time no see, we wondered what happened to you.

That sounds like a good offer. Also why don't you put a link to your webshop in the links section here. Maybe you'll get a sale out of it in a year of two.

Many thanks, will do that. As to not posting, I'm afraid life got in the way, as it does.

But just got 2 more jobs to do, and that's me more or less free untill the end of January cheers
