Spike Tomahawk

This tomahawk is patterned after the spike tomahawks traded to the Indians in the north east American colonies.  It is hand forged from mild steel with a high carbon steel bit and spike end forge welded in.  I have added some file embellishment of a style consistent with the period. The bit is 2-3/8 in. and the head length is 8in.  The overall length is 20in.  The handle is hickory and has a linseed oil and beeswax finish.   (#284)
