Apache Flop-Headed War Club (Commissioned)

Commissioned Work

An unusual request. A simple and brutally effective warclub made and carried by Apache warriors. The oak handle is wrapped in wet elk rawhide, then stitched with sinew and dried.

A tennis ball sized river stone is also wrapped in rawhide and attached to the handle. This allows the stone head to whip a bit, increasing the force of the blow.

A braided wrist strap of elk leather and a scalplock of horsehair complete the club.

The handle is approximately 20" long. The stone is approximately 2.5" in diameter. » read customer feedback
