He is known for his sharp, paper-thin edgework, unique even flaking and close attention to detail. His blades are collected internationally.

Looks wicked. :cool:

Ron, do you ever get obsidian blades with a drop point?

obsidian blades with drop point
 
Yes, I can get obsidian blades with a drop point. You generally have to special order them. I don't see too many on eBay or on the websites that sell obsidian blades.

Okay, thanks. Maybe someday.

flint
 
How about arrow heads. Not the glass ones I see in the souvenir shops. Those made from flint or obsidian. I am a Native American descent with a Grandfather who is full blooded Yaqui. I have made from hides I tanned, a complete costume of my Grandfathers people and also a bow and quiver. I need some arrow heads for my arrows, but do not want to take genuine artifacts from our land.

I'm going to list two more obsidian blade knives. I hope one of them pushes you over the edge.

I'm going to list a couple more. You can't beat the price.

You can buy flint knapped obsidian arrow heads. There are several websites that offer them. One is called something like "obsidian arts." Another is Kenny Hull's Timberline Art. There's also a store known as "Neolithics." You'll have to Google their names to find their respective home pages.
