    Re: Homemade points and things.

    Here is my first! One side still shows the embossing, but it is part of the learning curve.

    This is my very first, but I made it from a nice piece of Thompson Center black walnut. I used it on a belt quiver when I shot indoor archery. It was a fun project.

    I love it! The belt buckle is great.

    Re: Homemade points and things.

    Here are some points that a guy in my area knapped. He has been at it for years and is a pro.

    These were made from various materials such as glass, 2 types of obsidian, Flint Ridge flint, and Mook jasper from Australia.

    Re: Homemade points and things.

    Wow I have a long way to go.
    I made a green Mt Dew point that is curved like the shoulder of the bottle. Found the glass in the driveway of a shop I was working at and spent about 10 minutes making it. I also found some pieces of what appear to be shower door glass. Pretty thick and has a hammered texture on one side. It knaps FANTASTICALLY! The light blue ones are from that. The little ones are flakes I wasted time on and came out decent for flakes.
    The large base tried to use was way too thick and I wasted a lot of material to get it to a point and even then it came out crooked and rough and way too thick. I have found it easier to toss out ones I break in the process.

    I used an old cowboy gunbelt for a leather pad and it works great. Only bled on my pad once! Seriously, I think I have an addiction. They still aren't awesome and worthy of the Natives who inspired me, but everyone has to start somewhere.

    Looking good GL! Your notches are coming out pretty good! If you have diamond tile saw, you can cut the shape you want first, then do the pressure flaking so you get them more symetrical.

    I am really trying to get away from the straight-up notched bases I am making. I am going to make a side notch tomorrow.
