The Art of Flintknapping involves the production of many types of stone tools above and beyond projectile points.   The items on this page are replications of actual artifacts for use in the classroom, at guest lectures or for museum exhibits.   The tools offered below are specifically of the flaked variety - both percussion and pressure.   These tools are available in a labeled Riker Mount, if noted as an option.   Most of these tools can be put to their traditional use or can be specially requested to be previously used for comparative analysis purposes or display.   These tools are generic varieties, for more specific artifact replications of era or regional types see the  Specific Tool Replicas  page.   Please  CONTACT US  or use this  Special Request Form (pdf)  to obtain a quote for the replication of any other stone tools you might be interested in.   Dr. "Arizona" loves a challenge.
