These raw Georgetown Flint nodules have been cleaned of visible waste and
checked to make sure they are quality material. The size of these
nodules is great for very large daggers, axes, and
blades. The material in this natural form can also be reduced down by
spalling into smaller spalls/flakes for making multiple blades/points from
a single nodule. Georgetown Flint is a highly sought after knapping
material because it is particularly easy to knap raw, very
consistent, and the cortex often has banded layers which in contrast to the
blue/grey color of the stone creates a particularly attractive combination.
Georgetown Flint comes from the Cretaceous Austin limestone/Chalk on the
eastern edge of the Edwards plateau in the vicinity of Georgetown, Texas. The
Georgetown material occurs in a narrow range of grayish colors, of which the
steel-blue/grey glassy translucent variant known as "Georgetown Blue" is the
highest quality for knapping. In fact itís probably one of the best quality
materials anywhere in North America and is highly sought after. We have obtained
a limited amount of this high quality material, and will be offering it while
We are selling these natural cleaned cobbles in 10 lb lots because of
the sheer size/weight of each piece. Each 10 lb lot will include 2-4 nodules of
varying size and thickness.
We strive to provide the cleanest, blemish free knapping
material within our means. On some material 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 remove a
few flakes via percussion to ensure that you do not pay for large
amounts of waste.
Large knapping material requires large billets. Material
this large will require a spalling hammer, or extra large billet to process.
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 spalling hammer, or extra large billet to your order. Texas material
tends to be a bit more dense than heat treated chert. Depending on the size
material being worked, it may be advisable to use solid copper or
brass billets instead of a copper bopper.
