I am an aboriginal style Flintknapper, Meaning I knap only with deer and elk antler tools.
The hunting points that I offer are top of the line hunting points. Don't be fooled by the price. these points are very sharp and are 100% designed for hunting. I HAVE hunted and killed deer with these points. Pictures and details may be seen in my "Photo Gallery". Unfortunately, Not all points are created equal. Some other point dealers sell points not actually proven in the field..some are sharp, some are dreadfully dull and blunted..Trust the points you get from me are the top of the line for hunting points. If anyone ever finds a sharper point, than mine, of the same material, send it to me and I will send you a set of 3 just as sharp, for free! I strive to have the Sharpest, most streamline stone points available in the modern world, and likely the ancient world as well!
I offer Cahokia,Tradition Corner notch and Paleo Side notched points
Very Important: hunting with a stone point that is not mounted properly is as bad as using a dull point.
For best Penetration results please watch this free video on you tube about mounting a stone point correctly.

Remember one thing, the arrow kills the deer, not the bow
(although a heavy bow helps!). You can shoot the best bow on the market
but if you arrows are poor quality or your arrowheads are dull or too
large, your going to be disappointed in the final results. I've done
this, stone points are my passion, if you want to have a good experience
with shooting stone, talk to me first! I want everyone that shoots my
points to be successful, It is MY pleasure to help you succeed!
I CAN MATCH WEIGH SETS OF POINTS + OR - 3 GRAINS

Differences between Obsidian and Chert\Flint- plain and simple- obsidian points are a little bit sharper but flint\chert points are a bit stronger. the differences are minor. how to decide whats best for you? decide if you want to favor strength or sharpness. Both have worked for thousands of years. If I make a suggestion, I say chert\flint for heavy poundage bows and obsidian or lighter poundage bows. But again...they all work.
Choosing sizes- Often times stone points are made too big. I am a firm believer that bigger is NOT better when it comes to stone. the small, deadly little 50-70gr points, in my opinion are ideal. feel free to read this featured article on the subject http://gillsprimitivearchery.com/Very_Important_Info__.html
How sharp is SHARP? - Some folks claim that stone is "sharper than it feels." I agree to some extent.
Often times stone points are not sharpened correctly. more emphasis is places on making them beautiful instead of sharp, which is fine if your going to set it on your shelf. If your going to hunt with them, they must be sharp! It took me years to actually learn how to get them scary sharp
DO NOT ATTEMPT-- If I lightly drag an Obsidian point across the back of my thumb\palm (not recommended), it will grab the skin and tug on it and actually cut me up if im not careful. If I were to drag them with a little pressure, they would seriously cut me up. if it doesn't feel sharp, its not! I guarantee mine are sharp or your money back. Cherts will be slightly less sharp, but are still extremely sharp.
TIPS: keep a few points for practice only and never shoot your hunting
points for practice or they will dull. the edges can be touched up
with a pressure flaker if you are comfortable doing so. Extra practice
points can be bought for $5 each just tell me you want a couple
practice points at time of purchase if you choose to go that route.
Only shoot stone points once or twice into soft foam targets or the
points may break, keep in mind they are not as strong as steel.
shooting into rocks or hard ground will most certainly break them.
Always remove them from the target slow and straight out.
services----- I can mount stone points on your arrows for you. I charge $5 a piece for mounting and wrapping plus return shipping of your arrows. (If you buy my arrows and my points,
I mount them for free!)
