This is an introduction to modern flintknapping that
includes information on knappable stone types, stone heating with electricity
and campfire, spalling, percussion and pressure techniques.
We set out to give you a strategy for reducing stone into
thin preforms, applying edge retouch, notches or barbs. Spalling and fracture
mechanics are explained, and metal and more traditional flintknapping tools are
demonstrated for every step.
This DVD is crammed full of information and tips -- too many
to be absorbed with just one viewing.
This is a great item for beginners to purchase with our
Basic Flintknapping Kit.
