International Customers should contact us for adjusted shipping and other
stone is mined and heated in-house to control quality and consistency from out
of the quarry to your doorstep. Hundreds of tons of overburden and
weathered 'rotten' novaculite must be removed before we see the first spall of
nice clean stone. We only use digital temperature controlled kilns to
ensure that the stone is heated properly to the optimal temperature for the
right amount of time.
We strive to provide the cleanest, blemish free knapping
material within our means. On some spalls however, blemishes do get past us
because not all defects are evident at first or even second inspection. In
efforts to avoid defects as much as possible, we perform a few thinning blows to
ensure that you do not pay for large amounts of waste, over thick spalls, or
fragile/thin sizes that will shatter with the first strike.
Large knapping material requires large billets. Attempting
to knap large stone with too small of a billet will damage the billet and not
produce sizable thinning flakes early on in the process as needed. If you are
graduating to this size material from one of our kits, we recommend adding a
large copper percussion billet to your order. If you are unsure about what you
need, please visit our Flintknapping Buyer's
Guide, or feel free to contact us and we will
be glad to help.
