POINTS MADE BY

This picture shows a few of George Eklund's
points, mostly out of Missouri chert. All the top row points appear
to all be made from Mozarkite. The biface blade at the bottom is
made from Texas Georgetown flint.
George Eklund has made all types of points. His
favorites seem to be Archaic types, like Afton, Etley, Dalton,
Hardin, corner notched, and Sedalia. But he can make any type of
point, including, very good looking fluted points and fine art
points. His flaking style is not to make them appear as perfect and
uniform fine art points. But to make them appear as "normal" and
natural looking. This is one of his unique flintknapping abilities.
He can make them look old, which can be
difficult to do.
