Parker, 54, is a flint-knapper, traditional bowyer, and primitive-skills instructor. When museums need a historically accurate stone adze or an authentic bark-sided wickiup, he gets the call. He’s been knapping for 40 years. As a teenager, he got 30 bucks for an arrowhead. Three times now, he has replicated every man-made item found on Ötzi, the famed Ice Man of the Italian Alps—stone tools, copper ax, bow, leather cape, clothing, even the arrowhead found in the 5,300-year-old mummy’s back. Collectors have paid as much as $15,000 for the sets.

I've known James for many years. He is as generous as he is talented. The Otzi grass cape he made was pretty cool.

When you are around James Parker you will either be learning, laughing, or a combination of the two.

When we break a knife, we say, ‘Dang, I gotta go back to Wally World.’ But aboriginal man would say, ‘Heck, yeah, I’ve got two more tools!’”

I have soooo many tools  :-K  (lol)
