    And we have a Winner, Hunter.

    Number 7 is my favorite. Why? Because it looks crude yet very sturdy. It can be hafted to a stick for a spear or an antler for a knife. Yet it is not too large not to be put on the end of a sturdy arrow.

    It will also throw a spark.

    PM me your address and let us know which arrowheads or what spear point you want.

    Thanks,

    FVR

    I will say #13, simply because I like the color. Well Done on all of them!

    I would like to thank all who participated. I've started knapping again, funny, it's like lifting weights. When you stop, you need to start from scratch all over again. Well for me it is.

    Yeah, I'm like that with lifting weights or ... wait...I was thinking waiting for a lift. Never mind.

    Nice work on the rocks.

    Hunter,

    You get your pick of the lot, well except for #7. If you choose arrowheads, you get two.

    FVR, tried sending you a PM, says you won't receive it.

    Anyway, 8 and 9 are very nice, and I would be proud to display them, as I would with any hand made stuff you all make.

    Thanks again, a very generous contest, maybe PM me?

    Those are pretty darn nice. I saw a unique one last weekend. It looked somewhat like #14, but was made from a broken taillight lens out of a Model A Ford.
    Have Lights? Thank a Lineman!

    Yo, Frank, sorry I couldn't get back to you sooner, the package arrived in fine shape while I was in Louisiana, and didn't have any way to get back to you.

    I always enjoy hamdmade stuff, your talent shows in the workmanship.
    They will make a fine adition to my small collection.
    Thanks again.

    Yep, no worries, long drive 16 hours, hotter than you know what, down there, don't know how all you southern boys stand it.
    Too hot to have the dogs in the back of the truck, so had 4 labs in the back seat of the truck, with the air on........LOL

    Had the pleasure of making the Tri State Tollway, around Chicago, last evening, where it cost $20 bucks to put up with traffic, LOL.

    Maybe some one could explain why Illinois has a 65 MPH speed limit out in the boring boonies, then you hit the tollway and right up to 75 MPH and away we go............
