  • Amazing Dovetail.

    St Charles Dovetails are a Southeastern states point / knife, though they are found as far as the Northeast but rarely The Dove Tail base is very distinctive. This Early Archaic type from 9000 to 5000 BC. is always a very nice addition to any collection. The bases can be of the fractured type, heavily ground and occasionally notched. This point I crafted from a family find from here in Snyder County Pa. But changed the base. The cortex is very apparent and really adds to the beauty of this Catlinite point. Kim

    Have you ever tried repairing a broken point? Pretty much the same technique your using, first use some of that moldable epoxy like water weld , shape it and attach, let dry, grind and shape flaking pattern then brush paint to match color and pattern with acrylic artist paint, your skill of creating flake scars would pass for a repaired point, take a few non valuable pieces to practice before committing to repairing something rare like I did, you can always remove the epoxy if you don't like it

      No I never have tried that. I have a very good friend that does amazing repairs. I've had him do a couple for me. I find it easier to have him do it than trying it myself. K
