Prduct Description

These 2-4 inch Georgetown Flint flakes and small spalls are particularly well suited for beginners for their price and size. One pound is usually 3-5 individual pieces of stone in this size range. Great for small billet work and pressure flaking, these pieces can produce small blades and points, as well as other tools. 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 an 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 supplies last.

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 remove a few flakes via percussion to ensure that you do not pay for large amounts of waste.

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 billets instead of copper bopper billets.
