hi all,

i've been knapping since spring, after i convinced my employers into letting me teach primitive skills part time and thought i had better find a chalk quarry and skill up on flint:)

anyways, an outbuilding of rubble and another trip to the quarry later, i'm kinda getting it.. made some arrowheads, a few nice knives, tested some bits to destruction and learnt quite a lot so far.. i even took some of my teen aged students (i work at a SEN college) through gluemaking and knapping to hafting finished spears...

and its very nice to see a uk knapping community!

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. cats look down on us but pigs treat us as equals.

Stupidity got us into this mess, why can't it get us out
