A Levallois technique.

I get lots of questions about where to find rock. Here's what I tell them:

Getting good rock is frustrating for everyone. I know that doesn't help but it's true. I've had friends tell me they envy my stash of rocks. I tell them they can come over any time and use any rock they wish when they are knapping at my house. I usually send them home with some rock too. Most knappers operate this way. Try to find one near you. If you can't find any knappers or rocks or anyone willing to help, you can still develop a good stash in complete isolation even if you live in an area with no knappable rock for hundreds of miles around. That's exactly what I did. Why do you think others look at my collection of rocks and turn green? My yard is an oasis of knappable rock. Here's the biggest secret: be willing and able to travel hundreds of miles at the drop of a hat. The only way to get a good supply of rock to chase every lead, asking permission from as many landowners and flintknappers as possible, and greedily scavenge every bit of knappable rock until you have a ton of rock. Literally. I think I have at least 2000lbs of chert right now: combined total of all raw and heat treated stone. I'm not suggesting that you clean out the rock from your buddy's "honey hole" with a dump truck and backhoe. God forbid! All I'm saying is to go on a mission to collect a good "stash" and then sit back and knap in relative peace, knowing that you have enough to last quite some time. It took me three years to accomplish that mission but I did it. And I didn't deplete anyone's private source to do it.
