Hello everyone, I' m in Kingston, Ontario. Middling Knapper. Not far from Marc, but a ways from New Liskerd and T'under Bay! Closer to you upstate New Yorkers, I bet! My current quest is to locate some local rock called Trent Chert. Also on the lookout for some Ongwanada, but it's at the other end of the lake.

Thought I had posted here but I guess not.  Knapper, knife maker, and bowyer living in the middle of Delaware (lower slower Delaware) I don't know of any other knappers or knap ins in the area except for Oregon ridge in Maryland in May.

Brian from Harbor Beach,MI. Not much knappable rock here but I have found enough to make 3 arrow heads with from my farm. Best stuff I've found is chert balls from the limestone quarry really hard to work but supper durable points

Kenny from SE of Kansas City MO. I just began knapping since spring. I'd like to meet other knappers in my area. I met a couple guys at our traditional bow club shoot this weekend. Sure is nice to visit with and learn from fellow knappers.

I'm from east-central Wisconsin, halfway between Milwaukee and Green Bay.  I just started knapping last spring.  Been practicing on bottle bottoms, porcelain tiles from the Habitat for Humanity store, and a box of novaculite I eventually ordered online when I got sick of the glass and tiles.  A Californian twitter acquaintance also sent me some obsidian, but the're mostly round balls about the size of baseballs, and I don't know how to get into them.

My points aren't much to look at yet, but I'm learning a ton as I go, and slowly managing to hinge less often and get em skinnier.






A friend who studies such sites also gave me some samples of rocks taken from actual paleolithic quarry sites he was working at in the driftless area of Wisconsin.  The Hixton sandstone is very grainy and the others (I can't remember what they are) are very irregular and full of nodules.  All are well beyond my paltry knapping abilities at this point.

I am trying to figure out how to get started. Doing lots of reading online and searching Google. I would like to meet up with folks in the Tallahassee area to learn more.

Hey Mullet, I grew up in Lakeland and recently moved to N. Fla. Some days I miss my old stomping ground but I don't miss the I-4 traffic.

I plan to be at the Sopchoppy event. I need to watch someone and ask questions, just no sure where and how to start.

Pinal County AZ. I hope there is someone near me! YouTube can't say "Stop!! What the hell are you doing!?" :-K :'( Having said that, I will take this oppotunity to give a shout out to a mentor who's taught me so very much, and whom I have never had the pleasure of meeting... I know him as a one "JackCrafty" Ya'll seem to know him as Patrick. My hats off to him!!  ;D :OK

Flakescarred4Life glad to have you here. I learned almost everything I know about knapping from Patrick and a few others on you tube to. I actually really like bu hunter to. He helped me a lot. He has a way of explaining things that works for me and a pretty good since of humor to. Now I mostly learn from my failures and successes. Still learn something every time I make or break a point.
