Made this one a few days ago, added the serrations today.  A little thick at the base, but I like it.

Here are several closeups of different types of chert and flint.  I love the beautiful colors and textures each one has.  This was the ideal material for Native Americans in the making of stone tools such as arrowheads, scrapers, drills, and spear points.  Pictures taken by my daughter Mallorie.

Here is another arrow point I made yesterday from Flint Ridge.   Flint Ridge has become one of my favorite rocks to knap, beautiful color and easy to work.  This point is 2 1/8″ inches long and the base is 5/8″ wide.   I am not sure what point type this is, if anyone knows please comment.
