Pipe Tomahawk

Pipe Tomahawk

The pipe tomahawk is a commercially produced one made from a cast iron head and wooden stem patterned after the ones used as a trade item from both the English and French to the American Indians in the 1700's. Approx. three fourths the length of the handle is covered with your choice of either Red or Blue 3 band Wool Trade cloth (other colors are available on a limited basis) which extends well past the handle for about 18". The handle portion is then covered with a 5-6" section of smoked brain tanned buckskin to form a "handle". A 20-22" piece of smoked brain tanned buckskin is then added at the end of the wool trade cloth and cut to provide the fringe. The brain tanned handle is then adorned with Glass beadwork (this can be customized to your request). The handle is then completed with two "dangles" strung with antique trade beads and finally finished with two more dangles with feathers and either brass or tin cones. THESE ITEMS ARE NOT PREMADE. THESE ARE BUILT TO YOUR SPECIFICATIONS WITHIN A CERTAIN LIMIT. I DO NOT - WILL NOT USE PLASTIC BEADS OR INFERIOR ITEMS. All items are of quality and I guarantee my workmanship and materials. You can get "cheaper" items else where, but remember, you get what you pay for. It does not ship unless I am satisfied with it.
