It does if I do it with Obsidian. That stuff gets sharper than you can get surgical steel. I have demonstrated it to clubs like the 4-H, Boyscouts and stuff.

I put a nail in the bottle head down and give it a few good shakes with my thumb over the top and the bottom pops off clean. Then I go at it with my tools and Viola! Arrowhead.

Here is one of my favorite ones I ever did. I make a lot of them after actual styles they used. This is a small true arrowhead called a Klickitat Dagger from the Pacific NW. I kept thinking the whole time I was going to snap it in half but I got it.
