Paleo, you’re prize point can always be a guide for a new endeavor… Flint/Obsidian knapping is actually a pretty cool thing. I just picked up a “starter” set. I was going to use it to make decorative arrows, etc, but there is no reason (except if it is not legal, as in a post above) that an animal cannot be taken with a home-made stone/glass tip. As a matter of fact, knapped Obsidian is sharper than any metal blade man can create. It is not a problem with man, but a property of Obsidian and metal. Something to think about. And just think, 8K years from now, someone might be finding a point that YOU made. Be well.
