Extra Large Copper Bopper Billet
The extra large, 1-1/2 inch copper bopper percussion billet is the perfect thinning tool for medium to large stonework where long/wide flake travel is a must. The copper bopper billet design features a lead core that provides a comfortable weight forward strike and soft impact.
By far the most popular modern design of flintknapping billet on the market, the copper bopper is famous for its ease of use and forgiving nature.
The domed copper capped head with soft lead core provides a forward weight feel to run those nice long, thinning flakes.
A nice medium between solid metal billets and soft antler billets, copper bopper style billets will 'pull' a flake off of a stone core leaving less damage and micro fractures in your piece than many of the alternatives. Great for heat treated material and obsidian.
The extra large modern precision knapping billet is perfect for thinning large - medium points and blades. For finishing work we suggest a smaller billet.
Quality Hardwood handle with a rubberized non-slip coating.
1-1/2 inch outside diameter copper dome. Wood handle length is approx 5.25 inches. Sold individually. Made in the USA.
**Contains LEAD. After extended use, the copper cap will eventually wear through and/or the cap will become deformed enough to push the head off of the billet. It is best to discard and replace the billet at that point. Please follow local codes for proper disposal of lead containing products.
