Nice! you're starting to run those flakes now.

 If you have to pull the trigger, is it really archery?

Yup! i'm excited! i need to sharpen the small one a little bit!

My dad asked me to start making him arrowheads that he can hang on his wall in his office!. my old middle school has a stained glass club and they are always throwing away colored scraps. is stained glass good for flintknapping?

I think there was a long thread on that just recently, either in arrows or flintknapping.  The good glass works.

Looks like your starting to get the hang of it Russell. If you get lots of stained glass and end up coming to Marshall again next year.  Bring some along for the trade blanket.

I think stained glass is a bit too thin.  But give it a try. Nice job on your knapping.
