The earliest arrowheads were probably like this one made of chipped hard stone. Careful examination of the edges shows the fine craftsmanship to produce the sharp edges with the crude tools of the times. A stone was used to chip away at the edges in a very careful manner so as not to brake or damage the arrowhead. A fine example of early craftsmanship!
