Round Solid Copper Billets & Spalling Tools
     1 1/2 Solid Copper BilletTips on choosing a solid copper billet: Largest solid copper billets are used for breaking off large flakes or sometimes called spalling, such as the 1-3/4, 1-1/2" and the 1-1/4" diameters. The most popular length in these larger sizes are the 5". They are adequate for heavy work such as trimming and rock hunting. You can't hurt these tools with over ground platforms. Solid copper billets serve as an essential component for the serious knapper's tool kit. Tip: Heavier billets make for aggressive flaking but leave little room for error.
The 1", 7/8", 3/4" are the smaller sizes used for percussion billets on preforms and finish work. The smaller diameter rods are for micro billets or punches and experimentation. Some of the advantages of solid copper billets include durability, heavier weight and nearly indefinite tool life. * The Asterisk indicates the recommended and most widely preferred sizes by experienced knappers.      Please Note: Billets are + or - 1/8" in length due to machining when applicable.

Spalling Hammers
spalling hammer The 5 Lb. Copper Spalling Hammer
      Another a great hammer for working 2 pound nodules on up to 80 pounds or more! Spalling with copper has an advantage when platform angles and swing angles are less than perfect. The advantage of the hammer is in it's rotating copper head and short handle. The problem with fixed head copper hammers is that the contact area on the hammer keeps hitting the same area over and over. This results in a large flat spot on the hammer, rendering it useless. This is the solution to that problem, it Works great!
Applications:
* Spalling

spalling hammer The 3 Lb. Mild Steel Spalling Hammer
      My personal favorite! Economical and tough!
This hammer is perfect for trimming large spalls and spalling small to medium sized nodules ranging from 2 lbs up to 70 lbs. It's a mild steel that even works well on Dacite and Obsidian, heat treated stone and any grade of chert or flints.
     Don't let them tell you, "you can't spall with a steel hammer"! I have learned from experts like Steve Berhnes, Claude VanOrder and Gene Stapleton who are experts at spalling stone with steel.  
     This is the mildest steel available, other store bought hammers are too hard and will shatter good rock or cause flakes to fall short. This is a cost effective alternative to copper hammers. Copper hammers are more forgiving in striking improper angles but are expensive. This is a handy item for any rock hunter!
Applications:
* Spalling
* Heavy trimming
