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 Moose bits, 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 antler is getting a bit expensive; the good side is, you’ll be getting the best abo components available.
The Basic Abo 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.
The Deluxe Abo kit comes with everything in the Basic Abo kit, but also includes the Moose antler tipped Abo Indirect Percussion stick.
