    Retsup99, I believe that is a replica of an obsidian knife similar to ones used by the Native Americans in the South West.

    I can actually make some tools out of chert, flint or obsidian( a natual volcanic glass). The process is called flintknapping. It involves taking bone or antler tools and striking off pieces of the stone until the desired shape is reached, then further refining the tool with a sharpend antler with what is known as pressure flaking. Try looking up a man named D.C. Waldorph and watching his video. He is a master flintknapper.

    Tools like this are very sharp and effective, despite being old or "obsolete".

    Obsidian Ulu

    There is an Obsidian Ulu, similar to one I have stored away somewhere, on sale on ebay.

    Obsidian Alaskan Ulu Knife Flint Knapping Black Powder - eBay (item 120496734731 end time Dec-22-09 1107 PST)

    The horn handle on mine is cross-ways not vertical.

    I used it once to skin a deer and it worked quite well.

    an "arm" can be anything used for defense.

    It doesnt matter if its a blowdart, a rifle or a sound pulse.
    Which is why I have always questioned how it is that no one seems concerned with laws restricting knives or other non-firearm weapons.
    As long as we restrict ourselves to the idea that arms only mean self defense firearms we will lose the battle.

    When it comes to weapons most anti's use the argument that present day weapons were never envisioned by the founders and therefore not what was intended when they wrote it.
    When it comes to the freedom of speech they look at any advancement as an extension of what the founders meant.

    I believe that the 2nd A covers all arms. My F-16 has been on back order for a while now. (Note to ATF/FAA/any other TLA : just kidding)
