Large round quillons identify the spontoon style. The spontoon head does show a few dings and blemishes as expected with a piece this old. A nice inlaid brass heart in the blade. The point of the blade is folded over, its an old sign of damage, old repairs and damage are great and show the tomahawk was used. The haft has some wear but its a solid as a rock.
Ceremonial hot file brands are seen along the haft's length. A single shoulder on the haft, drilled with a single hole that could be used to tie on a beaded drop or old trade beads and buck skin thongs.
Makes for a beautiful display! Tomahawk dates 1850 or earlier. The stem is about 2 feet long and the head of the tomahawk is 11 inches long.
I hate to sell this but my husband has long since passed away and I need to sell some of his collection to make ends meet. I just hope this goes to a good home, someone who will appreciate it.
