Contact course provider
About the Course
Spend the day learning how to flint knapp like our ancestors during the Stone Age. On this course you will learn to shape a knife blade or arrowhead using the pressure flake method. The arrowheads are preformed so no need to learn how to percussion knapp. You will also learn how to attach the handle to the blade. Handles can be made from wood or antler.

A grand day out and I came away with a great little knife. A friendly guy who lets you go at your own pace. Highly recommended.
