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 from specific eras or regions which are perfect for use in the classroom, at guest lectures or for museum exhibits.   As noted, these tools are available in labeled shadow boxes.   Also available here are combinations of such tools as displays from certain eras and regions.   Currently only a few, but more to come.   Please directly  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.
