Hi,

Yes, millions of years more to working flints. Truly the oldest profession.

There was a guy on youtube who made folders for a living, he even inspired me to have a go and make a few.

I also put up some vids on my youtube channel of Brandon Gun Flint Knapping

More difficult than it looks, mine don't look half as good as that, and take 10 times as long to make. There guys are really skilled.
