It looks easy on video...
You have to make about a 100 pounds of gravel before you get the hang of it.
After that it's easy......just knock off everything that doesn't look like an arrowhead

Check your local river banks and walk creek beds, and plowed crop fields.

Thanks. You can also use glass.
The bottoms of older bottles work great.
Lots easier to knapp than natural stone.
