    does anyone know how to make obsidian arrowheads if so how?

    You have to knap them with another softer rock, breaking off shards leaving a sharp edge. You have hit it with just the right amount of force and just the right angle. It's very difficult to get good at, especially if making small arrowheads. A large knife or spear tip is another story, but still very difficult to do well. You can't exactly be told how to do it. You have to just do it.

      Your best bet it lightly chipping away at the rock until you get your arrowhead. As I kid I would try to make rock arrowheads and few of them actually worked using the method I stated. Again this may be very hard at first until you get the hang of it.

          Finally got caught up at work. Three months and it’s full bore again. They’d better find some decent help or I’m retiring early.
