  • Basic but beautiful! - Primitive Technology UK
    way it should Lastly you have to ensure you hold the piece of flint at a nice steep angle and strike at the lowest part you rotate the flint in your hand to change the place you are striking Your wrist should be doing most of the action use it like a hinge to snap your hand down through a smooth arc While you don t need a lap cover like you would for making handaxes you do still need to take steps to avoid getting flint chips in your eyes all the debris should fall straight down if you ve got your angle and striking right but don t take chances So that s how to do it right let s take a look at one example of what happens when it goes wrong If no flint is breaking off while you re striking chances are that you re holding the flint at too shallow an angle Change your grip so that the flint is held at a 45 degree angle Make sure you re making contact with your hammerstone and not your fingers Alternatively it could be your striking that s the issue not the angle you need to be hitting the flint about a mm in from the edge If you re not close enough to the edge to detach a flake you ll get tell tale little white spots on the flint see below Check your positioning and take a few slow swings to get your eye in The white marks are where blows have been struck too far away from the edge to detach any flint When you ve finished your scraper or at least if you re anything like me you ve gotten to the stage where perfectionism has been defeated by the fear of breaking it then it s time to dull the edge down So far while we ve only worked from one side we ve still made a reasonably sharp edge and for a scraping tool that s a nono Hold your scraper at a steeper angle than you did to make it and using a flat surface on your hammerstone grind it gently but firmly straight down over the bottom edge of the tool Rotate your scraper through your fingers always grinding in a vertical plane straight down until the edges are blunted Now you can scrape skins and hides without tearing jagged holes in them As someone who is pretty tentative when it comes to learning new skills especially physical ones this is the perfect exercise to gain familiarity with the flint and its fracture mechanics I d read about how flint fractures but nothing beats the tactile signals you re getting through both the flint and your hammerstone as you get that angle perfect and the flake practically throws itself off the flint before you ve hit it Turn your back for 5 minutes and look what happens Idle hands and all that This is also an excellent

  • If I had a hammer - Primitive Technology UK
    re not comfortable or competent in how you handle it quiet in the cheap seats My hammerstones are smaller than Karl s purely because I have teeny tiny child hands Make sure you pick one you can get a firm grip on that sits well in the hand as the last thing you want to do is fumble when you re trying to open a nodule up Bear in mind that you re often just using the weight of the hammerstone in a guided fall there s no need to put a mighty swing into every blow Let gravity and the weight of the stone do some of the work for you For best results wait for the deer to shed the antlers before using them for knapping Next out of the bag are the soft hammers Using the hammerstones will produce big chunky flakes with large bulbs of percussion the semi cone shape where the flint was struck this is fine for knocking off flakes to work but for anything more refined than roughing out you ll want to switch to something like these antler hammers see right There are a few different materials you can use for soft hammer percussion bone works alright although it s not as durable as antler apparently Lignum Vitae works although I ve never used it outside of the forge and if you want to cheat use more modern materials some types of metal hammer will work The soft hammers that Karl uses are all red deer antlers and like the stone they vary in size the one on the left in the picture I have dubbed The Beast there s no scale in the picture but it s about a cubit long I m not an obsolete measurement afficionado I just don t have a ruler to hand Sourcing antler can be both expensive and a chore I advise you to make friends with a gamekeeper or park warden and scoop them up when the deer shed Otherwise you re pretty much at the mercy of Fleabay with all that entails The reason antler and bone work is that they are softer relative to the flint which allows them to bite onto the edge of the flint and detach a thinner flake with a much smaller bulb of percussion Antler will last quite some time bone less so as soon as you ve worn through to the spongiform inside it s time to get a new hammer Be careful handling the hammer end as well as tiny little chips of flint may be embedded on the striking surface A pair of pris tine pressure flakers I ll get my coat The last tool we ll look at here are pressure flakers see left These are from the same antlers that provided the soft hammers above no need to chuck the tines away when you ve removed them they will be essential to making arrowheads and other tools where delicacy and precision are

  • Introducing the Padawan - Primitive Technology UK
    a well earned coffee a group of tourists asked me to show them how to make a stone tool Desperately trying to remember what I d learned in my first year while nervously regurgitating Karl s spiel I hacked out a reasonable scraper I really enjoy the tactile nature of the flint and the satisfaction of making something and so here I am apprenticed and starting the long journey to becoming a flintknapper I love experimental archaeology especially the sort where I get to smack things with axes This series isn t intended to be a heavyweight academic exploration of gender issues in archaeology but hopefully you ll find it informative and entertaining Keep an eye out for posts on a fortnightly basis and do feel free to jump in on the comments section Heather Share this Facebook Twitter Google Email High Gloss Polishing of Lithic Material If I had a hammer 5 Responses to Introducing the Padawan Ali Godding 2013 11 02 at 07 02 Great post I look forward to hearing more about your flintlnapping Reply Heather Armstead 2013 11 02 at 10 25 Thanks Ali Reply Julian Cresswell 2013 11 03 at 17 39 Hi Heather Great blog type thingy I ve read your posts on various Facebook pages and look forward to more wit and information thanks for taking the time to illuminate educate Julian Reply Heather Armstead 2013 11 08 at 18 39 Thank you Julian appreciate the feedback Reply Kenneth MacKriell 2014 08 18 at 11 05 Hello Heather I ll be visiting PrimTech this year to teach the evolution of the bow If you re there I d love to hear more about your work testing the Roman panoply Ken Reply Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Comment Name required Email
