Doe's anyone have a recommended source or should I do a random search?
If you’re interested, I’d be happy to knap you a few flints from some English flint I picked up in Beaufort, SC.
They ain’t pretty, but they’re serviceable.
A sharp spark to the strike pan is what I want. Looks don't matter. PM me details and to discuss.
Try these folks
My source for years for Black English Flint is "Track Of the Wolf"
In North America we do not have the Limestone formations of flint. We do have "Chert". During my years of Flint Lock competion I used nothing except Black English Flint. If properly installed and kept sharp flint can provide 75 hot sparks.
Some years ago a ship load of flint was found after 200 years. I was proud to use mine in the Texas State Match in 2003.

Dixie Gunworks maybe?
We sell them on our site, too.
Buffalo Arms has plenty in stock for flintlock rifles.
Holy cow, theirs cost nearly twice what ours do.
The ones I saw were about $5. Dont seem much to me. I am just putting it out there. I think most places are out of them at this time also.
We have the "modern" ones 4-pack for 13, 2 pack for $7, and 25 pack for $64
Musket flints are 2 for $4.85, 6 for $14.50 and 4 for $9.70.
