Knapper's Quarterly is a publication “for and about the knapper” as well as for those who collect and appreciate the art of flintknapping; an ancient skill that is still practiced today by many people around the world that involves the chipping of lithic or other materials to produce replicas of arrowheads, knives, and other stone tools.
