WESTERN LITHICS NAROWEST NOTCH ENTRY CONTEST!
OK Ishi maniacs, here is the chance to show your prowess and win a world champion title as KING NOTCHER. I, Ray Harwood of Bakersfield, California, will be the judge and jury (and a contestant as well). Results will be confirmed by an Ishi point panel headed by Ishi lithics expert, Jim Williams. The prize is a big world champion notcher trophy. The cost of entry (pardon the pun) is one well notched Ishi point( the one that I will judge). These points will become part of the Western Lithics study collection and will be donated to a museum for research. Points should be crafted out of glass, obsidian, porcelain, or flint-like materials. Sharpen up your Ishi stick -on your marks…get set….notch!!! The winner is the one with the narrowest entry into a nice tear drop notch. Western Lithics and or Ray Harwood is not responsible for any idiots that cut themselves or get chips in their eyeball. Knapping is a known dangerous sport.
