Rock or Point?

Walked a plowed field along a creek today. I believe this is broken point/knife of some sort. If it is, it'll be my first ever artifact find! The "notches" seem a little small. The base seems pretty uniform though. Not sure. Does anyone know if this is an artifact or just another rock? Thanks!

I would say that is something that was knapped at one point in its existence. I'll be interested in what the resident experts have to say.

It looks like it's been worked to me also, but I'm far from an expert. My guess would be the base of an arrowhead.

I'm no expert but it looks worked. Thing to remember is that not all tools or points that were started worked out as planed, just like now, and some were lost or just tossed half way through the creation process.

looks like it was made from stone into some type of arrowhead or something similar.

an arrowhead broken off about half of the length missing the point
the half that you have is the section that is fastened to the arrow
