Authentic original mid 1800's Plains Indian pipe tomahawk. This example has a highly sought after crucifix cutout on 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 in the traditional way, seen as pictured. Along the haft are many hot file brand marks and a single shoulder hole with a nice original beaded buckskin drop.
Just look at the beautiful wood grain on the haft, amazing! Nice old brass tacks are seen as well, square shank old ones. The mouthpiece is well worn and intact. There is a nice original carved clean out plug, its a natural substance.
The head of the tomahawk is 10 and half inches long. The beaded panel is 9 and half inches long, the total drop length is 22.
This is a fine example of a Native American weapon of war and peace pipe in one. If you have a question, please ask. Good luck and God bless the USA!
