amazing what a beautiful and precise arrow can be made with the simplest of tools and human perseverance.   Great job!

Thanks for the compliments guys.   :)

I'm thinking about adding a few more tools to my primitive toolbox...like a weight scale, a bone saw, and a stone drill.  If time allows, I'll probably do a build-along on the tools as well as another arrow.  I really enjoy working with the simple stone-age tools.

Awsome build along, I just skimmed over it but will read in detail and copy your techniques. Thanks also for your sinue string build along, I followed along and got one done. Couldn't have done it with out ya. I will probably be in west Texas before too long on a job, might give you a shout. Don't know any places to hunt hogs, sheep or goats do you? Was hoping to get in a hunt while in your area.  Again thanks for a wealth of info.    Kenneth

You're welcome.  Glad you liked the build-along. :)

By all means stop by if you're in West Texas!  As for hunting, there's plenty if you're a rancher....there's nada if you're a regular working guy.  The only way I can hunt (without paying a month's salary to a rancher) is by invitation.  I get one about every 5 years....mostly from a rich friend of a friend.  Texas is funny that way.

Anyway, if you don't mind sitting around a campfire, working on primitive stuff, and watching kids bounce around the back yard....you're welcome anytime.

Patrick, yea I was raised id Texas and realize it is a pay to hunt proposition. Was just hoping to find a place that was fairly reasonable for a weekend hunt for ferral hogs or whatever. Am going to try and get up with Curtis Keller AKA Seventh Age Bowhunting. Will probably be in the Pecos area in a week or two, If I have time would love to see some of your cool stuff.   Kenneth

Awesome buildalong.  That is probably the nicest arrow I have seen.  I really like the paintbrush idea.  Thanks for sharing all of that information.  I hope to use some of it soon.

A fantastic piece of work.  I would be crying if I lost one of those while out shooting though  :-\  As said by others, it is amazing how straight the shaft was when you had processed it.  Oh, and boy is this gonna screw up archaeology in the future - stone points, knives and spear points all around your area, along with the remains of primitive bows and arrows!  I can imagine the puzzled looks already...... ;D

Keep up the build-alongs - they are so informative.

Thanks guys.

Bob, yeah, I'm not going to be shooting this one. ;)

Paul, the arrowhead I used was a little thick....but I'm getting better at it....and I've been using those Ishi sticks you made as often as I can.
