I should have my new flint rifle in a couple of weeks and wanted to ask where is everyone getting their flints from? I know about TOW but wondered if there was maybe someplace better. (cheaper)

Thanks. I looked at TOW after I posted this thread and the flints I will need are $23 for a dozen. I will order those and then try again to knap some of my own. I don’t live too far from the Georgetown flint area known for having good flint/chert rock. It’s there just for picking it up. Sounds like a fun experiment.

I usually pick them up at TRADE FAIRS, sometimes a vendor has some and didn't update their price, or buy a few here and there, ask for a deal, you might get one, Depending on where you live, there are several going on this coming Labor Day Weekend.

Don't know if cheaper, but Heritage Products has English & French flints. Flints are after all a Hand Made product! We're fortunate anyone is even making the darn things! Good luck

I second Heritage Products, it's where I buy my flints. Good people to do business with.

I second this- just ordered 2 weeks ago- had my flints in 3 days.
Just an FYI-I placed an order last week with Heritage and they are out of stock on the flints. They refunded my purchase price. Ended up getting a dozen English Flints from TOW.

Heritage must have had a run on flints after this posting because I went over to them today and they were out of stock
