Knapping is great but bloody.

One of the neat things when young was learning flint knapping.

There's a woman who comes to the San Diego-area SF cons and demonstrates flintknapping:

There is an famous eye doctor who uses flint blades to operate with, in it's sharper than steel and he likes them more than Lazer.

I read an article where a flint knapper...an Antropology professor, gave a flint knife to a professional guide/skinner, and the man couldn't handle such a sharp blade on his first try.

If you knapp you got to wear not only safty glasses but a breathing mask. Knapping is dangerouse to your lungs.
