THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
A friend of mine sent this to me. Does anyone know of someone who has this knowledge?
[Actually, I'm trying to get someone to teach me how to make rifle flints.
I shoot a flintlock and have access to Georgetown Black but need to learn
how to do it.]
you knapp them into a triangular or rectangular shape. pretty easy to do with percussion flaking
I am the one who asked about making rifle flints. Unfortunately, the techniques you refer to are unknown to me, I am completely ignorant of how to do anything with flint. I'm looking for someone to teach me how to do the things you're talking about.
There is an indian artifact show coming up soon that I can either teach you at, or introduce you to a friend who can teach you how to make them.
I specialize in pressure flaking, my friend knows percussion flaking.
