Let's see some pointy thingy's. Could be stone, bone, steel, etc. Could be a arrowhead, knife, hawk, etc. The only stipulation is YOU had to make it in 2018. John

Looks like where the mahogany flowed next to the black obsidian, very nice scaring. Please show that one with some light behind the blade, thanks. John

From: Jon Stewart

I would call it Tri Flo but it has about 4 different brown colors in it. Can't remember where I got the rock. I usually donate my points but might have to hang on to this one.

One thing this thread makes clear is that bodymanbowyer, outbackbob and selfbow all have a set of "WorkingManHands". You three not only find and/or make great artifacts but it appears you get some work done as well. Thanks for the images. Here's one of my own I found while fishing in a river in New England very close to where it dumps into the ocean. I think it is a broken spear point from a fisherman who preceded me many years ago.

Those Faux points are pretty cool Jeff. I assume- yeah I know- that wood does not knap like stone, so is it a form of sanding/grinder?

PS the glass is knappable just like Obsidian. I love those Faux wood points. You did a fantastic job on those. They have very nice scar patterns and are very real looking. Maybe I'll find one more knife before I gotta go. This should be from Obsidian Jon gifted me deer leg bone handle.
