Modern Flint Tools

Stone tools are the most ancient evidence of our ancestor's ingenuity, proof that we've been augmenting our bodies for millions of years. These flint tools by Ami Drach and Dov Ganchrow update our prehistory with modern materials and techniques. Each knapped tool is scanned and then outfitted with a form-fitting 3D-printed handle. In marrying the most basic fabrication technique with one of the most advanced, Drach and Ganchrow's project demonstrates how modern technologies return us to the tribe.

I'd like this idea! I love that it has a touch of ancient tools and with a modernize handle. It looks so wonderful.

Is this for real?! :) This looks nice. Combining ancient and modern technologies.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
