    Where to find flint knapping materials in Montana?

    Hey everyone, hope you are doing well.

    I am getting into flint knapping, and was curious if anyone knew of any areas in Montana I can find some material to go out and collect myself to do some knapping. I don't care of the material, I just can't keep ordering it off the internet.

    Thanks in advance!

    There is plenty of info if you run a search on chert locations in Montana.
    Rad1sh and RGINN like this.


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    The Bald Eagle photo...he/she posed for me, gave me it's best American look. I felt privileged to get the shot.

    I've never been to Montana, but... I'd just start hunting shallow creeks. Take a good sized billet and a bucket and test any rock that looks promising. Internet will surely guide you to the areas with flint. You'll probably find more agate to knap than flint though. I'd guess Montana has lots of good knapping stone. Gary
