When the hard substrate was removed by placing the tool site outdoors on soft ground, Kanzi again spontaneously devised a tactic not previously shown to him. He placed one large stone on the ground where he planned to throw, then selected a second, smaller stone and threw it repeatedly against the larger stone until a flake of the type he desired was produced.

Kanzi usually makes flakes only when the tool site is baited with a desirable item; however, such is not inevitably the case. He has, on occasion, produced tools simply when stones were made available and no reward was in sight or expected. Apparently, practice in tool construction is in some cases self-rewarding. Kanzi's stone-chipping accomplishments give reason to believe that early hominids might well have made similar flakes even though there are currently no such tools associated with australopithecines.
