Incan star mace material
Jan 11th, 2021 at 11:17am
 
I've never really fashioned anything this big out of stone and as a first project I was thinking of making an Incan stone mace. I don't have much experience with this type of stuff so I have no idea what material the head is made of. Some people say its made of flint but I feel as if those glass like rocks are too brittle to be used as a mace head. Does anyone know what types of stone I can use or is flint perfectly fine.

The photo looks like granite.  Granite is probably a good place to start, but you could probably even do a decent replica even using some concrete formulation, maybe impregnated with some fibrous material to make it less brittle.

I, without sin, shall cast the first stone. That will be your sign to attack! But you shall not fight this unholy enemy with stones. No! RAZOR GLANDES!  Aim for the eyes! May the Lord have mercy, for we shall show none!“  -Jesus the Noodler
