4″ Tiger Chert Clovis Arrowhead


The point you see here is a Clovis point arrowhead I knapped from Tiger Chert to honor their gutsy prehistoric pursuits. At the end of the last Ice Age, ancient hunters roamed the wilds of Colorado and surrounding region.  They hunted not only for enormous creatures like mammoths for food and clothing, but also for a rock known as Tiger Chert.  From this strikingly banded material they knapped the fluted points which brought down the megafauna they pursued.
