    How would I make knives and spear heads only from rocks and stone, no deer antlers or bones?

    You mean not having anything to use as a pressure stick to help take off flakes ?

    You can do it with a rounded pebble.

    Will Lord :notworthy: shows it beautifully on his video here.



    Needs a lot of skill to make a knife using this technique though. Practice, practice, practice :)
