    Been trying to get one of these made for awhile now. Marcos point

    I got an order for a Marcos point. But I don't usually make Marcos points and usually dislike notching. I have broken several of these trying to get the notches and the flaking close to correct. Finally got one I am pleased with. It is 3.5 inches and made out of heat treated Bosque river chert. I have been told the originals weren't heat treated so I got that wrong, lol.

    Curtis I have found many Marcos that were heat treated.
    I know just enough to know that I don't know what I think I know.
