    First one I like the natural dry patina. The second one is the kind of point that needs a little oil.

    I like the 2nd one oiled better myself because it hides the ding near the tip caused by my shovel (If you're talking about the 2nd one in the 1st group of pictures).

    Ooow, and that third one was made for oil. I have no doubt it was that pretty when originally made, it might as well look as good now!

    The oil make a big difference on the look. Almost like a completely different point and material.
    They look very nice.

    I'll probably soak them all again one of these days.

    Agree Newnan, The Kirk and the Newnan especially with the oil. I like the Hardee a little better without it but I think it still looks great soaked.

    That's true dog, these are definitely the exception of looking better soaked (especially the Kirk and Newnan). Believe it or not but sometimes they look worse soaked. I've had some white ones turn to dirty gray, it's strange.

    Difference Mineral Oil Can Make Part 2

    Is there anything to help the look of a point found that was most likely fire pit cooked ? Found small point a while back and itís like it has skim layer of concrete-like substance covering most of the point. It was found outside of cave in bank where it definitely was exposed to much more Mother Nature and the elements than most of what I find. Most of the stuff I find is inside caves protected from the elements. Thanks.Click image for larger version.

    Maybe mineral oil will bring the color out more on it, it's worth a try.

    muriatic acid will remove that concretion. you can get it at the hardware store. do it outside, use chemical resistant gloves, don't breathe in the fumes, and wash thoroughly after the treatment before handling. it's not stuff to play around with but will totally clean that point.

    Never thought of that Moses, it won't damage the point right? and how long should it soak?

    no it won't damage the point. just use a very small amount. the soaking time should be measured in seconds.
