Flint knapping is the bush craft art of making cutting tools from larger pieces of rocks like obsidian that fracture into small, sharp pieces when struck carefully on the edge. With the importance of cutting tools like knife blades and arrowheads in wilderness survival, this is an excellent skill to practice. Even if you have a stash of knifes and arrows, if you plan on surviving long-term, you will need to be able to manufacture your own from material available in the wilderness. Here is a video demonstrating how it’s done and what tools to use.
