Hi. My name is Mike Cook and I was created to be a flintknapper. As a child I was always fascinated with the mystery surrounding prehistoric people, awed by the arrowheads and stone tools that my dad had collected. I didn’t really decide to learn to make stone points and tools. I was eventually compelled. After 38 years of flintknapping, for some reason I’m still not tired of it. Truth is that I’m probably more fascinated with it than ever. I suspect that’s because I never grew up.
Besides creating arrowheads and spear points, I design and knap stone knives, knap and create precious opal jewelry. My experience and study of Native American arrowheads has lead me to a focal point in my flintknapping art. My expertise and specialty is knapping arrowheads, knives and jewelry from gem quality flint, jasper, agate and obsidian from around the world. I also knap uniques art pieces and jewelry in the form of crosses, hearts and butterflies, but imagination is the limit, so your ideas are always welcome. Please enjoy browsing my website and viewing the incredible beauty with which God has endowed mere rocks.
