Ocean Wave Agate Clovis Point




Clovis points evoke mystery.  Who were these Clovis people, known for hunting ice-age mega-fauna like mammoths?  Why did they create these strikingly different points and knives that required such a high degree of flintknapping skill?  Trying to understand the mystery is what motivates a flintknapper like me.  This 3.5″ Clovis point is of classic proportions, including matching flutes half the length of the point.  The only thing not classic is that it’s knapped of high grade Ocean Wave Agate.  It’s fitting to commemorate a people who are no longer found with a material that is no longer found.
