Drawing a Flint Dagger

Post by grendel on Sun Apr 12, 2015 1:20 pm

This is an interesting vid. Especially as we have a pro on the forum.

It's funny when I first started knapping I always found is a bit anachronistic to draw points when they could be photographed instead. Also I found drawings hard to get into and of little use. Nowadays, I have my eye in, and I have completely reversed this position, when I see a photo of a point I find myself wondering if there is a drawing so I can get a better look. It's also nice that there is still something in the world where all of modern technology can't match a simple pencil and piece of paper.

Hey cheeky, I'm back and I heard that! 
Due to a computer crash I have been unable to remember my passwords for ages. Grr.
One criticism is he only illustrated one view, sections and side views are essential and the the other face would be nice as it is a bi-face after all.
Rant, rant! Did you miss me? Laughing

Hi,

Nice to see you back, I had my money on you'd given up knapping and taken up origami.

I do like folding paper, but beating up some chunk of silex is better.
