New guy..... new to knapping
« on: December 06, 2018, 10:55:29 am »
Hello, just joined and what a website!!!! Have always had a interest in primitive archery but little experience which I hope to rectify. Havent knapped yet but have put together what I hope will be a usable knapping tool kit. All of the antler is moose from far western Alaska  I did some trading for...... and that rock has a story. Found it during one of my many canoe trips as a teen..... it looked useful even then and Im almost 49 now  :) Look firward to getting to know you all abd learning from you. Craig

Welcome to PA Craig. I'm jealous of that tool kit. If you like that magazine you'll like this one to. Enjoy the site. There are a lot of really fantastic people on here.

Welcome aboard, Craig!  These folks have a wealth of knowledge about primitive skills, and a few modern ones, too!  Also, a keen sense of humor!

I'm sure guys have their places and I'd love to hear em all. For me going to Primitive Archery meets and getting supplies for all my needs has worked well. Usually pretty fair prices and no shipping. Also get to look, touch and feel.
