Knapper's stock clearance!

Post by mr.hertzian cone on Fri Mar 01, 2013 8:15 pm

Actually, while I'm at it, I have to find new homes for a lot of my work as it's slowly taking over the house!
I have been posting pics of my work for some time so if there's anything that has caught your eye from the last few years chances are I still have it and it's up for sale with the odd exception that I will want for the "keeper" case...
The work I have posted is only a small fraction of my output, there is a more... much more, and before ebay becons I thought it only fitting that you chaps and chapesses have first dibs Very Happy

Sad times, I had the same thing happen to me tonight, a nice long thin flake trimmed around the edges, I had a long pressure flaked willow leaf point in mind, and was trying to knap out the slight bend in the flake and ended up with two halves. grr... I managed a small barbed and tanged arrow head out of the larger half but it took some serious strategy to get there!

I was reading an article about sites like flintknappers.com, apparently the market in the US is about 6 million pieces per year sold by knappers. Here in the UK it's must be about 6.

Working out where and how best to sell stuff would amazing, but I can't think of one. How do things sell at the knapping demos you give?

Hmmm... Depends on the crowd, I'm new to this selling lark but the best day was an opening day at an archaeological dig, the worst was at a metal detecting show, they do like thier metalwork more than the lithics it seems. Laughing
At the knapping demos though I'm not allowed to sell as I'm being paid for the show. Hurrumph.

Grendel, What we need is Flintknappers.com.uk where we can all sell in one place, and ruthlessly plug the site in blogs etc. That would work possibly. Hmmm.

Pulling your resources would probibly work better, and any knapping displays should have a good supply of business cards and leaflets lying close to hand. Smile

I've always thought that a flint filled display box would have a bigger market than a flint just by itself. But it's getting or making the display box at an acceptable price.

Good point, like flint knife blades should have a handle! Unless the buyer wants to do that themselves.
Mr. Grendel has some sets of arrowheads all cased up, and they look good.

The axe in the middle is on the black side in the last photo, and nicely knapped (if I may say so) I'll be getting some new flint very soon if you want one knapped fresh....
