This is an introduction to modern flintknapping that includes information on knappable stone types, stone heating with electricity and campfire, spalling, percussion and pressure techniques.
We set out to give you a strategy for reducing stone into thin preforms, applying edge retouch, notches or barbs. Spalling and fracture mechanics are explained, and metal and more traditional flintknapping tools are demonstrated for every step.
This DVD is crammed full of information and tips -- probably too many to be absorbed with just one viewing.
