This lithic reproduction of a Solutrean Blade or knife from the Paleolithic period was made by D. C. Waldorf from Washburn, Missouri. D.C. is the author of " The Art of Flintknapping ", a layman's guide which has sold more than 40,000 copies over the years. Waldorf is also the publisher of the periodical " Chips ", the best of the flintknapping journals. A purist, Waldorf uses only bone, wood, horn, wood & stone tools, viz. tools the Indians used. Thus, D. C.'s points are not as refined as Virgil Tonn's points, but they are closer to what was made by Native Americans. This knife is not signed or dated. Length = 161 mm ; Weight = 62 gm
