| Currently I use copper billets and tools to create stone tools and points.
Historically, aboriginals used antler billets, stone billets, and anter pressure
flakers to make their stone tools. Early on in my knapping career I used moose
antler, and white-tailed deer antlers to do my percussion work. I switched to
copper tools because they are more durable and need less maintenance than their
antler counterparts. I can use both copper and antler tools while knapping the
same piece of stone, but stick to copper most of the time. If a customer needs a
replica made completely with antler, stone, and bone, I can do that also.
One of my favorite points to knap is the Susquehanna point as well as
Hopewell and Snyder's points. I hope you find the below resources and opinions
helpful and interesting.
Take a look at the points that I just can't part with at this time. These points are part of my keeper
