Those look really good! I assume they shoot well and penetrate well. How many years of practicing did it take to master your process? And how often do you slice your fingers while doing this?

That’s how you get educated and then go on to teach others.

Really have no intention of using them to hunt a deer with, although I am pretty sure they would do the job. I HAD a real nice, rather large point made from some beautiful white Illinois flint that I had fitted to a blunt point with the intent of trying to take a deer with it but I somehow lost the whole crossbow bolt. The Flint seemed to have the sharpest edge next to the obsidian.
And the "white" ones are clear glass!!! Although I have made a few points from some white Pyrex glass oven ware, it has a nice edge to it also!!!
Some hafted points. I have gifted a few to fellow IBEP Hunter Education Instructors. Mostly for show and tell, so to speak. A few examples...

Left point obsidian with real deer sinew. Middle point, green glass and I cheated... that is dental floss. Right point, brown glass and it had not been tied to the shaft yet. I typically use real turkey feathers and deer sinew to secure them and the feathers are also glued on with "Fletchtite" cement. Points are bonded to the shaft with 5 minute epoxy, but now I use a black dye to try to simulate the pine tar pitch and charcoal that the native Americans typically used. The amount of work to build one of these arrows is substantial when you take everything into account. It really makes me appreciate the skill it took to make these arrows, and to be able to take down deer sized game and bigger with them. Amazing the skills that all ancient peoples had. Kind of humbling actually.
Oh and when I first started trying to make them I probably broke 4 to every one that I finished. I did get better, but there are some really great videos on Youtube of Knappers going step by step showing how they work the raw material into a finished point. And yes I have "donated" a bit of blood here and there when chipping these out!!!

God Bless, Frank.

Poor potted mater plant completely wilted up 3 times while I was gone fishing but came back to life, sorta, to finally make an edible tomato. First 2 had rotten spots on the bottom.
Twas very good after sitting on the sill for a couple days once the puckerbutts and scabs were sliced off... and the skin not like elephant hide like I thought it to be.

More eggs. I print this out at 4 x 6 inches which makes the most prominent egg 1:1 in size. That way if you hold the picture to view it it’s like holding the bowl of eggs in your hands.

Looks like a mask from a Pagan ritual to me. Not that I have participated in any Pagan rituals but I did see Dan Ackroids remake of Dragnet.
But then again it kind of resembles the actor Ned Beatty.
