Looking to learn how to make arrow heads
« on: August 13, 2022, 02:13:11 PM »
Anyone know a good video or instructions on how to work with flint or glass?
Thanks for any help.  :thumbsup: :archer:

There are many online resources and I have found Ryan Gill of HuntPrimitive to be the best for me. He's very thorough and open to share his experience much like the folks here at Tradgang. If you're able to attend any traditional, primitive, or blackpowder/mountain man events the flintknappers are usually open to some level of instruction.

Thank you. I'll look him up.
Trouble with online searches is, you find more garbage than anything useful.

Look for a Knap-in in your area. Go, and talk to the knappers. Much like this group, most all are willing to help someone learn.
