Getting Em Thin with Primitive Tools DVD

$29.00

Getting em Thin with Primitive Tools is the second video made by Master Flint Knapper Roger Warmuskerken. In this video Roger shares his 33 years experience using both visual demonstration and diagrams on a marker board to show the more advanced methods of knapping that thin point. Special attention is given to slowing down, planning and getting the piece being worked under control, removing each flake as a planned process rather than randomly flaking the piece. The evolution of platforms is discussed as the platform gets thinner, an important aspect of making thin points. All work including notching is performed using primitive tools made from antler and stone. A 41/2” snyders point made from Burlington chert is made from a rough spall to a finished point. There is no editing out mistakes, the entire process of making the point is shown from beginning to end.
