The flint knapping community is as generous with its time and expertise as any enthusiast group I know. Case in point, this excellent resource from knapper Mike Lynn, who has compiled more than 340 pages (from many contributors) of very well-written and -photographed know-how touching on all aspects of their art, published as freely-downloadable PDFs:

  1. Basic Concepts
  2. Tools
  3. Finding & Treating Knappable Stone
  4. Percussion
  5. Pressure Flaking
  6. Fluting & Notching
  7. Displaying & Making Things with Your Points

The entire series is also available as a single document. Thanks to Mike and all the books’ contributing authors for sharing with us.
