We can see that the serrations line up with the flake scars of the
main shaping and thinning flakes on this face of the arrowhead.
The second image clearly shows the serrations along both
edges of the new arrowhead.
Here we can see the last tiny serrations made at the tip of the
barbs. The finished arrowhead measures just 1" along one side,
and 7/8" from the tip of barb to tip of barb.
Two different views of the finished point, a variety of the
Gunther style arrowhead.

Welcome to Arrowhead-Maker.com. At this new web site we will explore the creation of stone arrowheads.
Our initial focus is on an intriguing arrowhead style made in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. It is
called the Gunther point. This arrowhead style is famous for its dramatic, sweeping, wing-like, barbed design.
Some varieties also feature wicked looking serrated edges. In either variation, this point is both delicate and
deadly. It is a favorite of collectors of authentic arrowheads, and it is a favorite and challenging style to work
on for modern "flint knappers". Our objective is to review and show an interpretation of how the Gunther
style arrowheads could have been made in the past and how you can make this arrowhead today.
