    Default Primitives pt. 2

    Small skinner or neck knife. Mahogany obsidian, deer antler tine handle, pine pitch and back sinew. This rock is awesome, the natural colors are bad ass and has a slight rainbow color in certain light which can be seen in the first picture. Final products are beginning to look better. And yes it is what caused the application of a bandaid lol.

    That is nice. Did you happen to see that complete arrow that they found in Canada where the permafrost had melted? They were using plant fibre to attach the head. Must have had some sort of glue...

    Indians used something like that to open tubes of super glue and such.

    Its a small pressure flaker. Prehistoric man had access to copper and even Otzi the Iceman was found with copper tools. And JabIII yea you can make natural cordage out of many different plant fibers, and up there birch glue was probably used or pine pitch.

    Well yea theres a bunch of others, hide glue, fish glue, hoof glue its all basically the same. Pitch was generally used for hafting bc of the thicker consistency and the ability to tweak it without just falling off. The "animal glues" are very thin and watery.

    Mine too. I just cleared a field that was in dead hemlocks. Need to burn these 2 story piles and disk it. Just on top, I am finding quartz points. The field across the river from me was surveyed by UNC Archaeology as being at least 7000 years old. I am sure that it is more like 50,000 but I just want another game patch yo...

    Be glad they extincted. They'd have to have a permit from the poleece to have copper nowadays.

    Check out huntprimitive on Instagram. He reproduces points. atlatls, and for sales and some studies through Texas A&M (I think). He uses deer sinew for cordage and a mix of pine pitch, charcoal, and beeswax for adhesive.
