Built on commission in which the operative word was "delicate", this small tomahawk is roughly styled after English forgings of the late 18th century, but with some artistic license taken in the overall decoration and design. Poured pewter modified "tear drop" designs reflect original 18th century New England motifs, but are not found on original tomahawks. The head is Inlaid with two silver hearts and finished off with a floral engraved silver end cap to contrast the aged steel. After assembly, the entire piece was given a moderate patina.
This pipe tomahawk started life as a very different tool; a late 19th century shingling hatchet I found in a bucket of rusty tools in an antique shop. The head was heavily reworked to reflect the look of a late 18th century design, including drilling out the hammer poll for a pipe bowl. Once assembled, a patina was applied to both wood and metal to give the piece a well-used appearance. Not based off of a particular original piece, I incorporated details found on a few early tomahawks in James R. Johnson’s “Accouterments” book series. Though the head looks nothing like it once did, a small notch was intentionally left in the lower edge of the blade in recognition of its former purpose.
Built in the style of Finnish "Puukko" blades, these knives were forged from retired mower blades, and feature horn and wood handles. The leather sheathes have a traditional twisted leather belt loop.
