Aboriginal Stone tools made in the Australian Bush

The real deal, semi precious Jaspers, Cherts, Ribbon stones from remote outcrops...

These stone knives, tools and scrapers were made in the bush, as I have done for decades...

.....traditional way ... flaked with another stone.....carefully trimming the excess stone away

So my friends don't have too much extra weight to carry...back over a mountain...back to a track ;)
