Oval shaped ash haft is magnificent. Hot file brandings and old square shank brass tacks. Haft is solid and strong. Hawk bill style head with weeping heart piercing.
Haft to head fit is good, there a very very small amount of movement in the head, very small. Most likely caused by the wood drying over the years and shrinking slightly.Small damaged area on the haft as pictured. Pipe tomahawks were symbols of power and authority. Beautiful piece, a work of art. The surface of the metal shows a nice patina. 23.5" long haft, 9.5" long head. Please ask any and all questions.
