Many tools can be made from natural materials, including:
   Cordage - Plant fibers can be easily twisted, and they are very strong. Sinew also makes a strong cordage, but if it gets wet it can stretch and knots may loosen.
   Blades - Stones, especially obsidian, jasper, chert and agate, can be made into knives, arrowheads, axes and scrapers. This does require a lot of practice though.
   Bone and antlers can also hold a point or edge, and are easier to work with. Even a fire hardened piece of green wood can be given a hard sharp point. Just give the green wood a point, and stick it in a fire for awhile.
