2 Day Class
Difficulty Rating: Beginner - Advanced
Two-day course designed to introduce students the use of stone tools and the creation of them in a survival or primitive living environment. Stones are one of the most highly overlooked survival resources, but can provide many advantages when a knife, axe or hatchet is not available. Will discuss, demonstrate and allow students to use stone tools like microliths, hand blades, hand axes, daggers, scrappers and drills to produce and number of survival resources. Students will create lithic tool kits based on the knowledge they gained the first day using the simple stone tools. Students will have personal instruction covering the core fundamentals of flintknapping and troubleshooting procedures when working difficult stone. Students will walk away from this course with pressure flaking kits used to make hunting points, hand blades, microliths and all stone tools created. All materials provided, $175 per person
Food and Water Required: Water will be provided and food is your own choice. We recommend quick field expedient meals such as our Camp Ready Meals or MRE’s. They can quickly be made at our primitive camps and won’t slow down the learning process. You can also purchase food locally once you get here. Walmart and several local eateries are within a close drive away.
Minimum Survival Tools Required:
Bushcraft Style Knife
Overnight Camping Gear
Bring your gear with you. We do not provide you with gear unless you purchase it from us ahead of time. You don’t need much equipment for our courses, though good equipment does speed the learning process up greatly! You don’t have to buy our gear to attend the course, but you need survival gear of equivalent quality.
Length: 2 days/1 nights
OVERNIGHT CAMPING: You are always welcome to camp out the night before and the night after any course. Just let us know in advance!
