Craig Ratzat, Flintknapping Hall Of Fame Filintknapper # 10

"Neolithics is a company that deals with top of the line customers from all over the world. We have participated in the research of obsidian for surgical scalpels to being featured in prestigious museums and galleries. Along with numberous awards for excellence, artisan Craig Ratzat has established a place in the flintknappers's "Hall of Fame". His fascination with this art form has spanned a period of approximately forty years.


It all began at the age of six when finding an arrowhead in his parent's garden. It was the start of a long journey that took him from terrorizing his sisters with makeshift bow and arrow to working with some of the best teachers of flint knapping available. Craig is now one of those teachers himself. He has produced two very successful DVD's and teaches workshops throughout the year."
The International Flintknappers ‘ Hall of Fame and Museum is encouraging individuals of all ages to “Be A Superior Example,” through a new education program as part of a new curriculum to promote healthy habits, while encouraging everyone to live free of drugs and other such substances or vices. It serves as the central point for the study of the history of flintknapping in the United States and beyond, displays flintknapping-related artifacts and exhibits, and honors those who have excelled in the craft, research/ writing, promoting events, and serving the knapping community in an ethical and wilderness loving manner.
