    Nice! Are you using sinew to lace them on?

    Awesome work , Iíve always wanted to give knapping a try Iím gonna finally take the plunge and make / purchase a kit and give it a go ...... do you make any videos of you knapping ? Iv been watching some on you tube people make it look so easy but I know itís gonna be anything but easy.
    I would rather see an authentic broken scraper posted than a G-10 Artifake!

    Make your own kit. Way cheaper. 1/4 in grounding rod bought at home Depot and a length of oak broom handle, leather from an old boot and a chunk of grinding wheel.Then go to you tube on how to make your tools.

    Grounding rod is too soft the way it comes. Here's what you do to harden it. Cut a piece 6" long. Put one end in a vise and clamp it tight. Clamp vise grips on the other end and start twisting. You'll be able to make 3 or 4 turns before the copper breaks off at the vise. The piece is now much harder than before and will flake stone better. Gary (old retired knapper)

    I also do that Gary. Just forgot to add that part of the process. I take a 12" length and turn it until it snaps.
