A short and rather thin flake (5-7 mm) is pressure flaked on both faces with a copper-tipped flaker. The flake then gets thinner and its outline is shaped as a rough triangle. A second serie of retouches on the base creates the tang and the barbs. The whole process took about 30 minutes.

I start working on this 10 cm long flint blade with a hard hammerstone (not filmed), then, with an antler pressure flaker I start flaking the top side of this blade. this top side should later on bear no trace of debitage, so the flakes have to be realy covering. Once it has become necessary to sharpen my flaker, I make a burin, shape the point of my flaker, and go back to pressure flaking this solutrean shouldered[...]

Now that the blade has a backed side, I'm using a pressure flaker made of an antler tip. With this tool I can make a more regular side, driving small and porecise flakes off the side of the point. The whole pressure flaking was not filmed because it wasn't very fascinating....
