RIPPLE FLAKED &
These magnified views from two different Gerzean knives show classic flake removal patterns that can be observed on the best examples of Gerzean knives. The upper picture shows some very well done parallel pressure flaking on the back edge of one knife. This type of flaking decoration is one factor that has made Gerzean knives so famous. The area on the edge between the flakes are trimmed by pressure into small delta shapes. The lower picture shows some very well done serrations along the cutting edge of another knife.
