One of my hobbies: Turning natural stone into weapons and tools.


Recommended Posts

It's called "Flint Knapping." Since childhood I've had a fascination with prehistoric man's ability to craft tools and weapons from stone such as Obsidian, Jasper, Agate, Flint/Chert, agatized Coral, Petrified Wood, glass and many other silica based stone. Somewhere around the late 1980s, my interest and curiosity brought me into the flint knapping hobby. I don't spend as much time today as I have in the past but now and then I like to discover what's inside a rock. Here are a few of my creations.
