These 6 + inch 'oversize' spalls are ideal in size
for producing large points and blades. Material of this size and quality is
rare, and we do not regularly offer oversize in our product listings. For a
limited time we are liquidating some of our personal stock in order to make room
for new inventory.
This size and grade of material is best for the
seasoned knapper with advanced knowledge of how to get the most out of large
material. Priority Mail Postage within the United States is pre-paid and
included in the price of this 20 lb box of Spalls.
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.
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
us for adjusted shipping and other
limitations before purchasing.
