Using a Rebit PKM 25 Point to Shape Stone

Brian Post shows what can be done with the Rebit PKM 25 Point.  This versatile directional point can be used to effectively shape even very hard stones.  This demonstration was done on a very hard granite like stone.  It was used in conjunction with the Trow and Holden Chisel Wizard and Hand Hammer.

As of April 27, 2020, The Stone Trust has all these tools in stock as they were intended for sale at spring workshops.  The PKM 25 is one of our top selling products.  The Stone Trust is one of the few places to get this tool.  We are still actively shipping tools, so place your order and enjoy shaping some stone while also helping the Stone Trust manage its tight cash flow at this time of Covid 19.

You can also try out these tools in many of our workshops, particularly the 2.50 Intro to Stone Shaping Workshop next offered on July 18th.  Brian Post will even be one of the instructors.

The Rebit Point can be used in a wider variety of applications beyond what is shown in this video, but this gives a sense of its use.   Also available is the PKM 22 which has the same tip but but a slightly smaller hand stock diameter which is nice for people with smaller hands or when wearing thick gloves.

Many wallers love to use a bell hammer to strike with instead of the hand hammer so check that out too.
