PLEASE NOTE Flint is Dangerously Sharp!
It is strongly advised, when practicing your flint knapping to carefully consider the safety ramifications of this beautiful but somewhat dangerous art form. Shards of flint are renowned for being Razor Sharp once stuck from the flint core. We do recomend prper golves, protective glasses, suitable clothing and a leather knee guard.
It is, therefore, just a sensible precaution that you protect yourself from these dangerously sharp cutting tools; after all, flint cutting tools, knapped straight from the flint core, have been used by our forefathers for millions of years for hunting and butchering animals – if they can easily butcher a Wooly Mammoth what damage do you think they are capable of when it comes to your own hide?
Using the Flint Knapper’s Leg Guard is, therefore, a very important safety measure consideration to be worn when used for both pressure and percussion flaking. This is not included in this listing but to see more about our Leg Guard please click here.
