Nice old Lakota Sioux pipe tomahawk with original haft and head. The head is forged and very old. The bowl has an octagonal opening and rifling inside, originating from an old gun barrel. This is a classical example of mid 1700's blacksmith technique. The bowl is applied to the eye.
A nice unusual style shoulder, squared off, a nice touch! The style of blade is similar to a spontoon tomahawk. Notice several line engravings along the edge of the blade. The old ash haft is decorated with very old brass tacks and prolific file brandings. The haft is a work of art, museum quality.
The head measuring 9.25 inches long, the haft measuring 22 inches long. From a relative's advanced collection. Thanks for looking and God bless you all!
