Beautiful. Lost art. I like that you have a young audience.

Note to camera-operator: in a circumstance such as this, his hands are more interesting than the top of his head.

I live in NW Kent
We did this when we were kids, using a large pebble instead of the antler.

We made mostly arrowheads using coppice for the arrow shaft and bows.

We didn't even know it was called flint knapping lol

Excellent. A thing of beauty, and practical too, entirely by hand. Thanks for passing it on.
