BJ, thanks for bring back the Point of the Month. Got to busy last month and missed out. I found a nice straight flake of Flint River and just started messing around and ended up with a odd shaped stem point, kinda uni faced to boot.  :o Bob

Nothing wrong with unifaced points. I have picked up several.   Beautiful point!

Here's a stemmed novaculite point I just finished up. Made it broad and altered the base a little - I call that artistic leway. Rick B

1 3/4" long , 7/8" wide, 5/16" thick
I did not recognize that the tip broke off, ...so this became resharpened.

Me to. I hope someone post a new point for next month. Really enjoy this and it really does make me better by making me make a certain point. Besides that it's just plain fun.

I'm in the same camp as Clewis with this Adena, made from raw Hartville uplift chert, or Oil chert.

For August, how about a hafted end scraper - AKA blunt or stunner? The first two in the photo are finds and the third one I made from NC rhyolite. In most cases the end scraper was made from a broken then re-worked point. I'm sure you guys have some broken points laying around that you can use or just make one from scratch. Rick B
