  • Hello ABF

    Hi ABF,

    I have casually browsed the forum for a while. Some impressive works on show, and useful information. My dad had a small but nice knife collection, and he would have loved this forum - picking up useful and obviously well designed and executed handy-works, as well as helpful advice on metal and scales refurbishment, hones, leatherwork etc.

    A mate - Nulla - first introduced me to the forum earlier this year. Nulla posted on his fine knapped stone knives, to some deserved applause. I know Nulla well, and taught him how to knap.

    I have been knapping since 1993, and taught hundreds of people the basics of percussion and pressure flaking. I have joined the forum to further promote flaked stone technology. If there is any interest I am happy to post pictures of my work.

    I am very pleased to see that other folks are out there doing stuff, making odd but beautiful things - and that they have a friendly place to meet, show and tell.
