    I was given a small obsidian core while at Wintercount (oval shaped). All I did was pressure flake it into that shape with a bit of deer antler. After that I used a bit of saguaro rib and pine pitch glue to make a handle, then finished securing with artificial sinew (don't have any tea stuff anymore or would've used that lol)
