This is a 2 part series showing how to Flute a Folsom point using direct percussion as well as indirect percussion with an antler. In both cases, the preform tip is supported against a stone anvil padded with leather. The preforms were made entirely using hammerstones and antler billets and no modern tools were used. Part 1 discusses Folsom technology and looks at casts of original Folsoms. This is followed by demonstrating direct percussion fluting. Part 2 demonstrates indirect percussion fluting using an antler punch.
