OK Cane what the hell don't you have one of? Everytime I see someone ask about something you pop up with this picture of you holding one. Just how big is your house?

I'm with you. If I started a thread called "Show us your Langstrom 7" Gangly wrench", there would be a picture of him holding two, with Colt logos on them.

That said, that is freakin beautiful, Cane.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I don't know how useful they would be or hat they would even be used for, but I like how they look.

Cutting flesh. Obsidian knives are great for skinning and cutting flesh my brother.

Exactly. The ones I used, which where not nearly as nice as Cane's since they tried to reproduce rather crude originals, were good hunting knives.

They weren't good slicers (because of their geometry), but some modern flint designs are actually great slicers. You need to watch out for lateral stress, though.

Flint and obsidian arrow heads are very efficient as well, we tried them out and the only issue was that they could break inside the animal and leave sharp shards that had to be removed unless you wanted a nasty surprise in your food. We tried them out on Patagonian red stag (does, since we were stocking our freezers and they are smaller than males). Really clean cuts.

I'm sorry to hear you dropped your knife, Cane. I know how it feels. Obsidian and flint knives are sort of like meerschaum pipes, beautiful but fragile, you just have to make peace with the fact that they'll break eventually (unless you keep them locked up in a cabinet, I'd rather enjoy them).
