This item was made in Mexico this year, ancient knapping methods were used to make this Flint Arrow or Spear head.
Flint has been used by humans to make stone tools for at least two million years. The conchoidal fracture of flint causes it to break into sharp-edged pieces. Early people recognized this property of flint and learned how to fashion it into knife blades, spear points, arrowheads, scrapers, axes, drills and other sharp tools using a method known as flint-knapping. If these tools were broken or damaged in use they were often reshaped into smaller tools of similar function.
