Antique Plains Native American Pipe Tomahawk c. 1890
This is a nice early reservation period circa 1890s blacksmith forged pipe tomahawk attributed to the Plains Native American Indians. The blade of the tomahawk is hallmarked with a Maltese Cross and Diamond stamp, thought to be a Forth Blacksmiths touch mark. The piece shows a forged iron head with small rear-facing spur, thick ring around the top of the pipe bowl and file cut chevrons and groves at the eyelet hole. The ash wood haft handle is adorned with brass trade tacks in a design said to represent a tipi village.

The haft has traces of old black paint. There is a broken buckskin hide wrist thong still attached at the pierced hole just above the gripping area, which is artfully carved for the users comfort. Overall the tomahawk is 20 inches long and holds a 9 ¼ inch long head that is 3 ½ inches wide across the bottom of the blade.
