Original Lakota Sioux plains Indian pipe tomahawk. Large bowie knife blade pinned onto the brass head. Most likely the tomahawk blade was broke and the blade was replaced. Its an old original replacement.I have never seen one like this before! Some engraving is seen on the shoulder of the brass head. The bowl is applied to the head, 2 piece construction. Bowl has an old pewter repair. Hot file brandings and old brass tacks.
Haft is solid and strong. Pipe tomahawks were symbols of power and authority. Beautiful piece, a work of art. The surface of the metal shows a nice patina. 24" long haft, 10 1/2" long head.
