The Art and Function of Shaping Stone

It’s knap time.

I learned flintknapping in college while studying experimental archaeology. I’m not very skilled in it, but I love to learn the process and share how it’s done. For a hands-on learner like me, sitting on obsidian hits much different than reading about it.
