By far the most popular modern design of flintknapping
billet on the market, the copper bopper is famous for its ease of use
and forgiving nature.
The domed copper capped head with soft lead core
provides a forward weight feel to run those nice long, thinning flakes.
A nice medium between solid metal billets and soft antler
billets, copper bopper style billets will 'pull' a flake off of a
stone core leaving less damage and micro fractures in your piece than many of
the alternatives. Great for heat treated material and obsidian.
The 'MEGA' sized modern precision knapping
billet is perfect for thinning large - oversize material. For finishing work we
suggest a smaller billet.

**Contains LEAD. After extended use, the copper cap will
eventually wear through and/or the cap will become deformed enough to push the

point. Please follow local codes for proper disposal of lead containing
