Flint Knapp knife raffle
Hey everyone, we’re doing a raffle for a flint Knapp knife made by our friend @magwa . The proceeds all will go to three burn victims of a recent work incident in the oil field.
A rig caught fire and these guys got burnt up real good. They need some help because workmen’s comp is only covering half of their pay. These knives made by @magwa are beautiful pieces. He says the more we donate from this site the better the knife will be. I will start with a $200 donation I will post below and I won’t put my name in the raffle. I just want to help up the quality of the knife and help out some friends at the same time.
I will do a random name pick on January 1st 2020
The rules are as follows:
- A donation to each go fund me account earns you a slot in the raffle up to three slots. (Donate once to all 3 you get three slots) max of 3 slots
- No dollar amount, any donation works
- Must be a member of full30
- Email me your receipt of the donation with your full30 screen name attached to firstname.lastname@example.org
- We will draw on Jan 1st
The name of this benefit comes from @Magwa 's description of how the knives are formed
Knife examples and quote from Magwa
Ok guys some clarification , stone knives are pretty much a product of modern man, native peoples were not in the habit of making knives with handles, they just used a blade as it was or used sharp flakes off of a blade core so these knives I make are pretty much just modern art except the blades are made by flint knapping which was the way they made them for eons, I have been flint knapping for 25 + years I make very few knives mostly I make points of certain types…I do not have a web site and do not advertise my work is known all over the country by those people interested in modern flint knapping. There are no secrets to it, it is years of hard work and practice to learn how to flint knap . it is all about how much stone you pass over your leg =tonage… so lets keep this simple I will make a knife for the winner of a auction or raffle whatever, the knife will reflect the amount of money spent on the cause if it is a low number it will be a simple knife if it is 500 or above it will be more elaborate.
I have 100% control over what type of stone etc…handle material etc, there is no stone or bone exactly like another they are all different I also need time to do this as this is a outdoor activity you never break stone inside unless you want to get black lung from the silica dust so I am a slave to the weather I work when I can… but I always try to be done in a reasonable amount of time…
Tell your people…That since we were promised we should never be removed,We have moved five times
