You can learn to make your own blades and points with just this simple beginners Flint Knapping tool kit, or plan for the future and pick up the Deluxe Kit with the notching flaker and “Little Rascal” 1/2″ bopper as seen in the beginners video linked below. Aside from a few special circumstances, all the blades and hunting points I make are with flint knapping tools just like these.
The basic kit includes 2 different size boppers, and 1 flaker and abrader. The kit also comes with a leather pad to fold and help cushion your leg. If you are going to order extras of anything, I would recommend an extra pressure flaker or 2, but even one should last you quite a while as you can trim some of the wood back as it shortens. I do recommend pounding your flaker back into a point instead of grinding or filing. This will make it harder and last longer as well.
