As seen used by Ryan Gill on the HuntPrimitive YouTube channel (linked at the bottom of this page), Primitive Flint Knapping Kits are comprised of hand selected antler components by Ryan Gill to ensure proper density and the best work-ability possible. Hammerstones and antler are the earliest and truest form of Flint Knapping, however, it is typically more difficult to use and master compared to copper knapping tools.  While we always encourage people to assemble their own knapping kits, we also know that not everyone has immediate access to the best components needed to make a good knapping kit (such as  Axis deer billets, and fresh whitetail antler tines), so we are now offering these (while supplies last) to our customers. The unfortunate side is, Premium axis antler is pretty expensive; the good side is, you’ll be getting the best abo components available. Why Axis antler? Axis are the densest of the deer antlers and by far make the best billets. Even for their smaller size compared to elk or even big whitetails, the density of axis antler is without a doubt unmatched.

The basic kit comes with:

A leather pad, 1 Free-hand Axis antler billet, 1 larger deer antler tine for pressure flaking and brushing (abrading), 1 Small antler tine for final edge work, and a hammerstone. Everything you see in the basic kit can be used to make points and blades.  Additional tools also available as shown below.

Fun Story, Ryan Gill flint knapped for over a decade with nothing but these aboriginal/indigenous style tools. In that time he never so much as felt a copper or other modern tool. That style of knapping sculpted him into the knapper he is today. Since then, Ryan has transitioned into using copper tools more often to both teach other flint knappers and help create the best knapped points and tools available. However, you can still see Ryan work extensively with these ancient tools in my of his videos.
