Woody Blackwell's Flintknapping - the Art of the Ancients- This instructional DVD would make a great addition to anyone's library of knapping aids. Produced and directed with Derek McLean, it is well thought out and nicely presented.

Running time is 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Understading Flintknapping Fundamentals by Mark Bracken
For years I have told my students no two people knap the same way. We take a little from this person and that person and experiment until we find what we are comfortable with. Mark's style of knapping is quite different from mine. His points speak for themselves that his style works. Watching this DVD may make a connection with you and how you can become more comfortable in your own style of knapping.
