Creating a flint-knapped knife - Bob Estep

Join Flintknappers from across our region for a weekend long demonstration and gathering of primitive technologists at SycamoreShoals State Historic Park on Saturday and Sunday, August 27 & 28 from 10 am to 4 pm each day. This fun, family weekend only happens once a year so we hope you will stop by!

The art of flintknapping is the specific process of making stone tools, such as arrowheads, spear points and other survival tools, using traditional tools. This skill has been passed down through generations and for the annual Knap in at Sycamore Shoals, you will have the opportunity to enjoy demonstrations of the craft along with other tools used by primitive cultures worldwide.
