Flint Knapping Photos from Last Saturday

We had a great time flint knapping in the tent last Saturday. The sun even came out for us which was a bit of a surprise!

While a few of us had knapped before, it was brand new to a couple of us and we took the time to go over some of the basic information we'd need, such as a bit of terminology, and angles to look for on the flint cobble to take off a good flake.

 And then we got to knapping!

Here is some of the basic equipment...

Here's a little something knapped as it was the day after Valentine's...

I hope everyone that came felt they learned a lot!  We will be knapping again in two weeks, giving us an opportunity to improve on last time.
