Product Description

This traditional tool kit features tools inspired by examples found all over the world in prehistoric archeological sites. Hard percussion (hammer stone), soft percussion (antler billet), and pressure techniques (antler tine flaker) are all covered with the tools in this one kit.

Kit includes:

  • Medium Antler Billet 5-8 oz (Mule deer shed)
  • Small to Medium Hammerstone 4-8 oz in weight
  • Antler Tine Pressure Flaker (Mule deer)
  • Natural Sandstone Abrader 
  • Leather Hand Pad
  • 12 Page Basic Instructional Booklet

The 5-8 oz antler billet is good for medium points and blades and some finishing work. Size, shape, and color of natural antler components will vary from kit to kit. If you are wanting to work large spalls 6" or over, we recommend purchasing one of our larger antler billets.  

The medium hammerstone is a great tool for rough percussion but are particularly unforgiving for delicate percussion use, and will destroy a fragile blade easily with one misplaced strike. 

________________________________________________

Traditional tools are also known by flint knappers as 'abo' tools (derived from the word aboriginal). These terms refer to tools that are made of natural materials and are similar in function to the implements used by our stone tool making predecessors throughout the course of human technological development. Examples of other abo tools include hammerstones of various densities and shapes, antler tine flakers, rib bone flakers, lashed flakers, wood billets, sandstone edge modifiers, and billets created from the base or 'crown' section of antler.

Flint knapping with traditional tools is immensely rewarding, though challenging to use and not the easiest to learn with. There remains something to be said for recreating the process that is largely accepted as one of the most important technological advances in human history with nothing more than items found on the forest floor.
