Woodlands pipe-tomahawk end of 19th C
Mesurements : 58 cm Weight: 770 g. Description: blade in hand-forged iron withish influences, typical design of those exchanged by French trappeus, with the upper part derived from a rifle barrel used to make the bowl to smoke tobacco. Certainly used for fights rather than ceremonies as the weight of the blade seems to confirm. Handle in maplewood with engravings made by hot file. Great age patina with probably finishing in beaver oil therefore the typical brownish colour.
