Hafting

Remember the recipes and materials for hafting, was poking around flintknappers sites and found this.

Just try flintknapping in your search engine, lots of pages.

Just taking a couple hours off, and surfing around the web.

Hey Gene-
How's the weather out there. I lived up in the Skagit Valley until 7 years ago and often miss those soft gray days, but my arthritis sure doesn't.
Here's a good source for Pine Pitch if any body needs it.

You can get real deer sinew from Crazy Crow for one.

Well I really should get back to work, that wolf keeps lurking around.

Thanks for the links Wild Rose, was up in your old stomping grounds about a month ago, wife and I took a weekend off and did some backroads touring.

Gray days are good for forging, don't get the itchy foot and want to be out in the sunshine. Gray here today with drizzle, perfect for a moss back smith.

Good links, all! Gene, I follow that basic recipie, but I use beeswax instead of tallow and I use the dust from old crushed bricks as the aggregate. Tai sent me some dried moose dung once and it worked real well as the aggregate.
