By Charlie (aka Stonefacescar)

here are the tools that I made and use...

copper ishi stick, hammer for dressing tool tips.

split branch ishi stick

62

ishi stick adjustment

wrapped

63

another hammer, encased in rawhide

pressure tools

64

hand flaker, showing the little bent 'cleat' or 'spur' that locks the tool into the
inside of the handle

65

percussors

raw copper nugget percussor, and a splitting wedge/percussor

66

antler tine holders

done with these tools

67

notching tool tip shape..

if you use branches off a tree, instead of dowels, it is easier to split the branch,
down center, and it is easier to follow the 'pith' to hollow out the center with stone
tools, for the antler or copper tools tips...

hope this helps

Charlie
