Who has the best flint?

I use English flints (wish there was a local out crop 2 chip my own), who has the best ? I got rid of the "cut rock". Small siler lock. What flint do you use & where do you get them.

I use Tom Fuller knapped English flints that I order from Track of the Wolf, at $2.00 each or $19.99 a dozen.

Were you thinking of Jim Morrison up in Titusville? He always seems to have them. If there is another local place Id like to know about it.

+1 to Tom Fuller flints from TOTW. They are very good quality flints. I usually order two or three when I am placing another order with them. I will also buy some when I go to Dixon's gun maker's fair. Somebody is always selling English flints there, usually for a fair price.

For a small Siler lock, the 3/4 X 3/4 size will probably work the best. I have a large Siler on my Lancaster and it uses 3/4 X 7/8 flints. My L&R on my smoothbore also uses 3/4 X 7/8 flints.
