We are now offering a line of spalling hammers for those with local raw knapping stone resources. These solid carbon steel spalling hammers are suitable for reducing raw blocks or nodules of rough material into usable spalls and flakes. We use these same hammers for reducing raw Novaculite and Keokuk from its rawest block form, right out of the quarry.
