    What are you doing?

    Ah, the south … do you think they are worried about being PC? oh, & what I was "doing" was - I was at a KNAP-IN. Which is where they sell, show & trade "carved" rock. Like my "eagle" picture; which is obsidian. flint, chert, obsidian, etc. & they make arrowheads, spears, jewelry, etc. (spalling) Lapidators, Knappers.

    And on a not too country note. I believe on the way out to the Knap-In we passed Justin Timberlake's new house being built. Huge! Leiper's Fork is kinda out there though. It's nice most of the way, large horse farms, then in town a very small community of art & B&B's and small homes built in the 1800's. really cute/quaint.

    I've always admired that obsidian eagle in your avatar, 4. That's a wonderful piece of art. What size is it? It looks like it might fit in the palm of my hand, but maybe it's bigger.

    What are you doing?

    Thank you Dan. I thought it was awesome when I first saw it. It's 6" long. I included a pic of what it looks like in the light. The picture is from Emory Coons who made mine. He's THE best. I also have a knife by Kenny Hull -- included. It's probably a 3" blade - 9" total with an African elk horn handle.

    Wow, that's way bigger than I thought it would be! I wonder how many he broke before he perfected the best way to knap that out? That's beautiful! And I love the colors in the knife blade in the other picture. And I didn't know there were elk in Africa.

    What are you doing?

    Yep they look like our elk/antelope . They kinda have "ringed" horns they remind me of Texan Longhorns - kinda. oh trust me i'd rather had an elk from here upper/ or Canadian but this look was perfect.
    Thanks! Look him up, I emailed and asked about the eagle & he sold me one. Ken Hull gave me his info.
    And for the guys out there he does the playmate / mud flap chic!

    Well, trying to get on Amazon PRIME day - like everyone else. It keeps crashing! So, I'll keep trying.
