Antique Missouri War Axetomahawk

A TRUE AND AUTHENTIC C. THIS IS A SOLID FORGED TOMAHAWK THAT WILL DATE TO THE 1850'S.

MISSOURI AXES WERE SMITHED AT FORTS AND TRADED TO THE NATIVE AMERICANS. THERE IS NOTHING LIKE HOLDING A REAL AND TRUE MISSOURI WAR AXE!

THE HEADS WERE FORGED OFTEN FORGE WELDED AS THIS ONE HERE, FORGING SEAMS EVERWHERE INCLUDING THE TOP OF THE BLADE, PLEASE SEE PICTURE #3. THE HEADS WERE THEN FILED AND OFF THEY WENT TO THE TRADING POSTS. UNLIKE THE FINELY MADE TOMAHAWKS OF THE 18TH AND EARLY 19TH CENTURY, THE MISSOURI WAR AXE WAS A LITTLE CRUDER, BUT VERY SCARCE TODAY. THE NATIVE AMERICAN WOULD PUT A HANDLE ON AND DECORATED AS THEY WANTED. THE HANDLE ON THIS AXE IS WIRE WRAPPED, WITH 8 TACKS.

THE EXPOSED WOOD SHOWS WEATHERING WHICH HAS STABILZED WITH AN OLD COAT OF VARNISH OR SIMILAR. THE HANDLE APPEARS TO HAVE A LEATHER GASKET BUT IS DIFFICULT TO BE 100% SURE. THE HEAD IS STILL ON TIGHT.

THE HEAD IS 7" IN LENGTH, ABOUT 3 1/2" WIDE BLADE AND SLIGHTLY UNDER 18 IN OVERALL LENGTH. THE WONDERFUL HEAD SHOWS A NICE PATINA, ANYONE WHO COLLECTS TOMAHAWK'S OR ANTIQUE ARMS WILL KNOW THIS IS THE CORRECT PATINA OF A WELL CARED FOR AXE. THE WEEPING HEART WAS HAND CUT IN THE BLADE. FORGING SEAMS EVERYWHERE THAT YOU CAN FEEL WITH THE NAIL OF YOUR FINGERS. BEAUTIFUL AND RARE, THIS IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF A SOUGHT AFTER TOMAHAWK.

IMAGINE THE STORIES IT COULD TELL!! I DECIDED TO TAKE THIS AXE TO A NATURAL ENVIRONMENT FOR THE PICTURE'S, THERE'S NOTHING LIKE THE FEELING OF HOLDING AN ORIGINAL TOMAHAWK THROUGH THE WOODS.
