Flint Arrowhead (Pt.2 of 2)

I found this flint arrowhead while out walking one day, the toe of my boot just caught it and sent it skidding along the path.
To my untrained eye it has been well shaped and maybe even worked to improve flight or piercing ability?
It looks to have notches on each side, perhaps for binding to the shaft?
I think it perhaps is "incomplete" (i.e. has snapped off at the bottom), which adds to it's history!
