Found this little guy this morning, it looks fluted but I’m going with a thinning strike that happened to be in the middle, trying to figure it out if it’s a point, a heavily resharpened point, or if it has crossed over into drill territory.

Maybe drill is not the correct term? These are other finds that are also off center.

All the other triangular points from that spot are fairly well made, near equal sides nice and sharp, straight edges, maybe that’s why this one is throwing me, it seems like maybe it was a stemmed point at first… or Maybe it’s just a sloppy triangle… other thought was maybe I’m looking at it backwards and it’s a scraper with the pointy end being hafted but I think that’s least likely

I think It’s just a bit of an odd ball, seems like I get a lot of those. Then again I see everything I find as a puzzle piece, when I find a tool I can’t confidently I’d it bugs me because I want to know everything I could possibly know about each find. Thanks for looking.
