I debated whether or not to post this one because it's so long and also because the narration is not very good. Hopefully it will be of benefit to you guys. I keep getting requests to do more videos on the initial stages of flintknapping nodules, river cobbles, and smallish chunks of stone... so here ya go!
In the very beginning of this video, I say that I'm going to show how I "spall" nodules of flint but I meant to say "shape". I've already posted some vids on spalling. In this video I attempt to show how I solve the "nodule puzzle" to produce a simple biface that can then be refined into a projectile point, blade, scraper or other tool.
