What should I start with?!

Post by Mujician on Thu Jun 11, 2015 5:51 pm

I've just received my napping tools from Prehistorics and he kindly added a few flakes of flint. Does anyone have any suggestions of anything I should try and do first? Or should I just try and make an edge or two? Many thanks, Ben

Glass or obsidian is good to practice on, get the technique. It's identical technique to flint, but easier to do it to. Also you could try simpler stuff like scrapers, borers and so on.
