I most definitely will. I have one i am doing now. I will post pictures with the steps as I go. Sound cool. Just give me some time. It is in a box with my knapping stuff.

I'm another who would like to see that, especially if you can preserve the trademark in the finished point. That's a creative idea!

It's a hard one. I am no expert. I just like cutting myself apparently. I looked half heartedly for the one I did. I was unsuccessful. I did find a bottom I pulled off a broken Clorox. I will post the steps as i do them. This is the first step, carefully break the bottom clean all the way around. Step 2 is to shape it like this clear bottle bottom. Basic shape they all start out. Watch guys on YouTube they are much better at explaining. I like Jack crafty. The shapes edge should be back and forth. I did all this with a river rock. Like I said I will make a post of this whole process as I see it.

These look like they'll all date to roughly the same period, it'd be hard to date them precisely without date codes. As for collectability I'm not aware of any screw-top Clorox bottles being desirable to collectors, they're one of those things that I always leave behind when I encounter them in the woods.
The Clorox came out in the 40's.They seem to be not popular with collectors being so many were made during that time period.What is interesting is the reverse embossing on the bleach bottles.

Reverse embossing you say.... I want to ask that really dumb question but I can't think of it.

Since you are a projectile knapper, I though you might enjoy part of a free verse poem I've been working on. Here are the opening stanzas of: SIGNIFICANCE OF CHIPS

Compelled, perhaps by memories lingering longer than melanin
within twisted strands of emigrants paled and broadened by icy epochs,
I camped last night under gnarled and splayed canopy of an ancient acacia
where, preparing for ritual fire, I unearthed artifacts, knapped siliceous flakes,
while raking parched detritus from anhydrous, sere ground.

Too long, almost, I'd postponed visiting the Mother Continent,
decades aggregated with injuries having stolen strength
and confidence from my once self-assured stride.
Now, scuffed traces I drag through these hot sands and radiant pebbles
mirror the meandering of thoughts welling from my memory-muddled mind.


Elsewhere in the piece, I mention conchoidal fracturing and the eolitic.

DISCLAIMER: I am neither a flint knapper, nor an archeologist; but I am intrigued by the span of human development and prospects for the species' future.
