Maybe not so bad? Eh Jim?
Some mighty fine heat-treated biface preforms ready for general use or to be made into something a little more refined. Source material from the St. Louis area, Burlington chert. Thanks Larry!
At the Oregon Country Faire.
Field testing the nearly finished rucksack. It still needs a few closures and bits but is essentially as finished as anything I make. It’s poorly packed for a quick hike and not very full. More pictures to follow when I get some time off to tramp around with it.
Features: Heavy, waxed canvas truck tarp with 10-12 oz leather straps and all brass hardware. It has an axe sleeve, two long, exterior pockets, small flap pocket, two narrow pen-type sleeves, interior valuables pocket, compression D-rings on sides, D rings for shelter roll, and loops for carabiners.
All hand saddle-stitched and riveted at stress points. I’ll put up a sketch of the pattern for anyone interested.
