I've tried knapping glass from those old tv's with the large backs, here are some of the things I made, and some bone arrowheads.

The first picture is the first spearhead I made that didn't break.
The spearhead in the last pictures is the best I've made so far.

That’s awesome. Are you reading a book to learn or some other source?

I watched a lot of youtube videos, mostly from Greg Pryor, he has some very good videos on knapping glass and ceramics.

Nice job!  Flint knapping is something I've wanted to try for a while.  I just don't think I would give it the time needed to develop any real skill with it.
