Flint nodules that have been modified by MEMS to more easily facet along useful lines. A nodule could be processed to more easily produce a Clovis point. Others could produce a Grant Cave, or Decatur point. Why spend years learning how to properly flake a spearhead when you can buy one practically ready made! Supply your own knapping mat and antler pressure knapper. A few hours effort and you can bring down your first big game.

       How could MEMS do this? Can they induce stress lines in flint?

       Sigh. Poor form to drop a tech term like that with no link (see link).   

       And the point is the least of the challenge in bringing down the game (spoken by a guy who only spears fish).   

       And be certain to pick up after yourself. I found a site where somebody had been chipping obsidian. May as well leave shattered glass laying around.
