I am interested in tools and weapons from the stone age to modern day. I am going to start making some but if i found a more economical way i would buy them. If any one has any ideas please let me know. Thanks Tyrone

There are a few suppliers out there, few who supply to all periods mentioned. Irish Arms or Montague Heritage Services would probably cover the wide range you specified. If you have the means, I'd say have a go at making your own. It's the best way to learn, and you can speak to the public with better authority about items you managed to make yourself. If you're in Tyrone, consider a trip to the Antrim coast for some flint to make Neolithic tools. There are scored of flintknapping tutorials online, or you could try doing a course with this guy:

He's in Co. Down.

All the best,
