I'm a primitive hunter (obviously) and I like to make my own hunting gear. I recently bought a CS 5' magnum blowgun and decided to make my own darts for it. I mainly use steel so far for broadheads, but I started to wonder how flint would work for a blow dart broadhead. So I made one and it's been very effective against small game? Has anyone else tried this or something like this?

I use nails with "grocery bag" brown paper cones. I use a sharp chisel to make barbs on the nails, all up and down, they go in easy, but are hard to pull out.
