My buddy Mike Cook of Portland, Michican, has been knapping for 30 years. It shows. And while I’d probably never dare to use such a knife for fear of damaging it, I’m still amazed at how inexpensive fine hand-knapped points and blades are compared to handmade steel knives. A traditional custom knifemaker with Mike’s experience would charge several times as much for his skill. I first ran across Mike’s work on FlintKnappers.com, which is a great all-around resource for those interested in the hobby.
