Arkansas Novaculite most often is white to off white but can sometimes be
found in shades of black, translucent, red, and purple. Keokuk is a high quality
chert found in parts of Oklahoma and surrounding areas. Keokuk is typically
cream to pink colored when heated, and may contain bands and speckles of bright
red and brown. Dacite and Obsidian are both translucent black or
grey igneous stone found in areas with past volcanic activity. Dacite

WARNING: Obsidian and Dacite flakes
can be sharper than razor blades! Exercise extreme caution! We highly recommend
using gloves to work these materials as they will make even the most
experienced knapper bleed.
We strive to provide the cleanest, blemish free knapping
material within our means. On some spalls however, blemishes do get past us
because not all defects are evident at first or even second inspection. In
efforts to avoid defects as much as possible, we perform a few thinning blows to
ensure that you do not pay for large amounts of waste, over thick spalls, or
fragile/thin sizes that will shatter with the first strike.
Large knapping material requires large billets. Attempting
to knap large stone with too small of a billet will damage the billet and not
produce sizable thinning flakes early on in the process as needed. If you are
graduating to this size material from one of our kits, we recommend adding a
large copper percussion billet to your order. If you are unsure about what you
need, please visit our Flintknapping Buyer's
Guide, or feel free to contact us and we will
be glad to help.
