Shadows on the Trail and Making Folsom Projectile Points

Another great video by paleomanjim on YouTube. This guy is truly the modern master of flintknapping as his scarred and beat up fingers demonstrate.

In this video he used indirect percussion with a moose antler punch and rock hammer to flute the Folsom point. This is the same method I used for the Folsom People in Shadows on the Trail. As stated in the video by paleomanjim, this method is more accurate than direct percussion.

He did pressure flaking with a deer antler and the finer pressure flaking detail with a deer tine.
