English Flints English Flints

The finest natural flint occurs as dense grey-black nodules, within chalk deposits. Tom Fuller, a young man with a deep interest in the tradition and "lost art" of flintknapping, continues the trade. He is today’s premier gun flint maker, not so much interested in quick work, but watching, measuring, and predicting each fracture line. As he forms fine flints from gentle taps, we quickly recognize that this work, like diamond cutting, is truly a art form! Happily, he is teaching his son, and others, this lost art.
Sizes :- 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 7/8" & 1".

Flint Knapping Hammer Flint Knapping Hammer

This flint knapping hammer has a hand forged iron handle with a brass hammer head, for sharpening gun flints instantly.
Overall length is about 4-3/4". Tie a leather lace or lanyard to the tail, to prevent it from becoming lost.
Made for flint lock shooters, this hammer will sharpen the flint in your lock, instantly.
NEVER sharpen the flint on a loaded gun!
Some flints can be re-sharpened 1 to 10 times, after every 20 to 30 shots.
Place the hammer at half-cock, and gently strike the front edge of the flint, square-on. This straight-on blow chips the upper and lower edges of the front edge, revealing a sharper edge.
When the top jaw screw comes close to the frizzen face, your flint is too short for this gun. Use it in a smaller flint lock (pistol lock) if it is still sharp.

Timothy Pickering's Tool, Timothy Pickering's Tool,

This is a replica of the first U. S. issued gun tool, designed by Timothy Pickering, our first U. S. Quartermaster.

Medium size, this tool is made to fit your Jim Chamber's Fowling Gun lock, large Siler flint lock, L&R Queen Anne, and the R. E. Davis Jaeger and Fowling gun flint locks. Hand forged, ground to fit the lock screws correctly, and tempered, this tool will give a lifetime of service, exactly like the original.
A very useful tool to have on hand, the Pickering musket tool has a large screwdriver head, for tightening the top-jaw screw on your musket or rifle, and a smaller screwdriver head for the lock bolts or any other screws.
The back has a vent pick for cleaning the touch-hole. Small enough to keep in your pocket or possible bag. Hardened and tempered steel. Never use the vent pick as a dowel pin in your top jaw screw hole, else you may bend it.
