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 Deluxe Abo kit comes with:
A leather pad, 1 Large axis billet, 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, 1 antler punch, and a hammerstone.
