Authentic original mid 1800's Plains Indian pipe tomahawk. This example has a highly sought after silver bat wing & heart inlaid into the blade. The iron head has a nice "in the metal" patina and shows good use and wear patterns. The head was forged and then the blade was cutout then inlaid in the traditional way, seen as pictured.
Along the haft are many hot file brand marks and a single shoulder hole with nice original old square shank tacks. Just look at the beautiful wood grain on the haft, amazing! The mouthpiece is well worn and intact. There is a nice original clean out plug in the end of the haft.
The head of the tomahawk is 12 and half inches long. The haft is 23 inches long.This tomahawk is heavy and well built, solid and strong. This is a fine example of a Native American weapon of war and peace pipe in one. If you have a question, please ask.
