Knapping Artwork by Mick Hill
Long time PSK member and even longer time knapper, Mick Hill is best know for three things in the PSK community; big, beautiful, percussion blades, his obsidian knowledge and his outstanding ability to teach others! He's made hundreds of incredible large blades, visited more obsidian sites that anyone else know to the PSK, and has taught countless people the acient art of flintknapping - including at least two blind people. Mick has also hosted a PSK knap-in each of the last 16 years and had probably attended over 100 PSK knap-ins over the last 30 years! He even provides musical entertainment, usually with his brother-in-law, Steve Allely, with his bagpipes!
Mick and his Flintknapping Tool for the Blind - a combination walking stick for the blind and fully functional, 5 foot long, copper-tipped Ishi Stick.
