    Sort of looks like an arrowhead? It looks pretty danged good to me. Very nice job on the tools and the finished product.

    I'm also brand spanking new to knapping. It has been one of those things that I have wanted to try and do since I was a kid and was just never around anyone who did that sort of thing. Well the other day I watched that video that was posted in an earlier post about beer bottle bottoms and decided to give it a go. I made up a couple of tools that I thought looked sorta like what they were using and got and old beer bottle and made something that sort of looks like an arrowhead.
    It is pretty dang fun I must admit and frustrating at times too but I'm learning as I go. I have to say also that I have about as much fun making the tools as I do crackin glass! Here is a photo of my first ever attempt and the tools I made.
    Thanks Bj. wtrfwlr
    *** Heck, I forgot to size the pix to fit! I hope I can go do that and then attach them to this??? If not I'll post them in the next one, sorry.

    Thank you Kind Sir. I'll keep fooling with it. I would prefer to have them appear full size if I can.

    Thanks for the nod. I must admit I was kinda proud of it myself. Of course, like everyone I wanted it to be better but I'm sure the ones that follow will be.
    I now have some TV glass to play with and some Johnstone too but I'm not liking it all that much yet, it's sorta crappy! I'm trying to get my glass down before I move on to rock.

    Thanks so much Rick, the tools are pretty fun to make and then see them work and work well is just cool. I had always read about Indians made stone points using an antler and it made absolutely no sense to me until I grabbed an antler and started beatin on a beer bottle with! I just looked and thought, "I'll be dipped, it works???"

    Thanks for the applause Ted. If you had been here to see me you would have been rolling on ground in laughter crying out "Do it again, cut yourself and cuss again! That's funny!"
