Tried a couple more. One from a piece of mirror and the other from a flake George S sent me.

Pointy! Love the flint point. Think I'm gonna try them out this fall. I really like the design.

Seem easy to make for the most part. My problem is that they do not meet the state's size requirements to allow for use on big game. :-\

I agree Tower I think I would grind the base and sides up to the side points,then haft them up .After making this point I'm going to make a few and see what they look like on a shaft.

Here's my submission. This is a raw piece of Montrose chert and it worked pretty good. I like this style of point. I think I will play around some more with it. See what I come up with.

Nothing wrong with it. You did a great job on that base. Is it outta novaculite?

Nice!!!  Lots of good points being posted.  Maybe tonight I can get a little shop time now that I'm back in the state.
