For many of us, flintknapping has been a
life long curiosity. I always wondered as a child how Native
American peoples used their tools to turn simple flint or
chert rocks into incredible works of art. My interest in
flint knapping was rekindled about 15 years ago when I just
wanted to add an arrowhead to my fossil collection.
I met a fellow from
Hernando County Florida who's hobby was artifact collecting.
He showed me a Newnan point made of Florida agatized coral
that he found. This was the most amazing thing I had ever
seen! It was in my eyes, the perfect flint spear point.
I knew from my fossil hunting days what the"raw"
stone looked like in the field. I
just could not imagine that such a thing so perfectly crafted
and sharp could be made from those simple stones.
Well,needless to say "the quest was on". I wanted
to know how they created them, what they used them for
and the biggest question was, "could I too make such
a point"? In 1994 I attended my first knap-in.
Now, 15 years later I am a "full-time" commercial
flintknapper and knapping supplier! I have been supplying
knappers nation wide with high quality tools and flints
for almost 10 years now. This site is here to help you
