DALTON POINT WITH
This Dalton point struck something hard enough to completely destroy it. There was no chance of repair by resharpening and rebasing. The tip of the point is shattered with a crushing type of impact fracture that removed the tip and a portion of both edges. The base was completely removed and a large channel flake further damaged the point in a way that might be described as a bend-hinge "flute" caused from backward pressure against the haft.
