Quesnel, British Columbia, Canada here.  Just a newbie.  Have a bin of obsidian that I've been staring at for a couple of years.  Watch lots of YouTube videos, made some tools, but still just staring at these round rocks trying to figure out the first strike.  Should get started now that I finally retired and have the time.
Any knappers in British Columbia want to take on training a rookie?

Used to go there with my jet boat and fish for those beautiful rainbows and you really do live in a fantastic place!  Joe

Thanks Joe.  Yes, this is a great place to live and play.  Great fishing for rainbows, brookies and browns.  Also very good hunting for bear, Mule deer and moose.  Starting to see more whitetails around here as well.  I'm looking forward to archery season opening up September 1st.

Cheers.

I'm just getting started my close friend Bob Walden help me get some basic beginner tools together.

I've been watching knapping videos on YouTube for months now.

This is the very first point I ever made it was a scrap of flint Bob gave me that he knew wouldn't make a good point but it gave me some good practice. I have about 25 or 30



Here's the tool kit we put together I know I'll have to get a bunch more but for now at least I can break some rock!



Those points you see there are some cast aways Bob gave me to see if I could sharpen them and in general make them legal to hunt with in WV (no barbs mainly).

Of course I've been burnin' the midnight oil reading all I can here!

We are planning to make a trip up to the Flint Ridge Knap-in in Ohio Aug 31!! Really looking forward to seeing in person all the demonstrations and perusing all the stuff the venders will have for sale, especially the flint!

I remember when i started knapping about 14 years ago. The next year i made it up to the ridge, I still remember that trip.
Be sure to bring some $$ because the rocks add up. Find Eric Morris aka Morris rocks ask him about a bargain bucket. Basically its a 5 gal bucket full of flint for a good price. not top shelf stuff by any means but still knappable rock and good practice.

Knapping in Dayton Nevada. I have not met any local knappers yet. I am sure they are out there.
