Forged Spike Tomahawk (Wire Wrapped)

SOLD: $495

A nice medium-sized spike tomahawk with a long handle for horseback. The blade is hand-forged from carbon tool steel and filed to shape. The blade is scalloped along the bottom with a filed relief at the juncture of the spike. The square, curved tapered spike sits on a square base. Spike and edge are hardened, and the head is patinaed.

The haft is straight-grained hickory which is scalloped to complement the blade. The haft is finished with Aqua Fortis, stained, with several hand-rubbed layers of tung oil applied. 20 gage brass wire is wrapped around the upper portion and finished with brass tacks. Seven small brass tack decorate the handle below the drop as well.

A leather drop, edged with bone beads and brass studs, is finished with a small feather and secured with twisted sinew.

The head is 8.25’’ long, with a 2.125’’ edge. The spike is 2.5’ long. The haft is 21’’ long.
