Product Description
Product Description

This mix of small spalls and flakes is graded for our own kits for their size and ease for beginners to learn on. Stone types included in this mix are heat treated Novaculite, heat treated Keokuk, Obsidian and/or Dacite. Sizes range from flakes to small spalls that will require some percussion. Mix will include mostly 2-4 inch material. Sold by the pound. (Product picture shows 3 pounds).

The small spalls offer a chance to try your hand at percussion flaking techniques, while some of the smaller flakes allow you to jump right into pressure flaking methods. These sizes of stone are perfect for a small antler or medium copper billet, no large billets required to work. These pieces can produce small blades and points.

Arkansas Novaculite most often is white to off white but can sometimes be found in shades of black, translucent, red, and purple. Keokuk is a high quality chert found in parts of Oklahoma and surrounding areas. Keokuk is typically cream to pink colored when heated, and may contain bands and speckles of bright red and brown. Obsidian and Dacite can either be black or grey and are igneous stone types found in areas with past volcanic activity.

WARNING: Stone flakes can be sharper than razor blades! Exercise extreme caution!

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.

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.

Educators:

More pieces of stone per pound than our larger 3-6 inch material, these small spalls and flakes spread out over a class or seminar particularly well. Also, only one small to medium billet is needed to work these sizes of stone, rather than a large elaborate tool kit. The mix of stone types help offer some variety and allows a new knapper to identify a particular stone type that they may want to try more of in the future.
