The word tomahawk, sometimes simply called a hawk, was introduced into the English language during the 17th century. It is derived from the Powhatan Algonquian word tamahaac, which, in turn, comes from the Proto-Algonquian root temah, meaning to cut off by tool, or by an axe. The first contact with white traders brought natives the iron axe (called hatchet, hachotz or hatchette by the early Eastern explorers) and especially tomahawks with their hammer, spike or bowl on the poll end opposite the blade and its hollowed opening in the head for the shaft. A serviceable tool for daily chores, as well as for throwing, hand-to-hand combat or smoking, these combination tool-weapons immediately became one of the most highly prized items of barter with Indians out West. Nevertheless, by the early to mid-19th century, the iron tomahawk had become a standard trade item and fighting implement of frontier Indians. The tomahawk is in excellent condition with no repairs or damage. Nice head forged from iron, most likely by a blacksmith on the frontier, then traded to the Shoshone, who in turn placed an ash haft into the eye and adorned it as seen. The head is a spontoon style fashioned after the Spanish weapons desired by the Native Americans. Ash haft is original to the head. The brass tacks are original old tacks. All along the haft are many ceremonial file branding marks made by placing a file or rasp in the fire until it was bright red and then burning the file into the haft. This was done for aesthetic “looks” and ceremonial purposes. The haft is oblong, not the usual diamond or teardrop shape, this is a rare style. There is one “shoulder” with drilled hole for attaching drops or beads. VERY NICE patina all over, really shows its age! The unusual style head is very desirable. The star inlays represent the stars and constellations in the sky. A similar axe with the same style head is in the Museum of the Native American in Washington, DC. Conservatively dated to 1860 but may be earlier. The haft of the axe is measuring 24″ long and the head is measuring about 12.5″ long. Please ask any questions you may have.

The Crow are Native Americans, who in historical times lived in the Yellowstone River valley, which extends from present-day Wyoming, through Montana and into North Dakota, where it joins the Missouri River. In the 21st century, the Crow people are a Federally recognized tribe known as the Crow Tribe of Montana, and have a reservation located in the south central part of the state. Pressured by the Ojibwe and Cree peoples (the Iron Confederacy), who had earlier and better access to guns through the fur trade, the Crow had migrated to this area from the Ohio Eastern Woodland area of present-day Ohio, settling south of Lake Winnipeg. From there, they were pushed to the west by the Cheyenne. Both the Crow and the Cheyenne were pushed farther west by the Lakota (Sioux), who took over the territory west of the Missouri River, reaching past the Black Hills of South Dakota to the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming and Montana. The Cheyenne eventually became allies of the Lakota, as they sought to expel European Americans from the area. The Crow remained bitter enemies of both the Sioux and Cheyenne. The Crow were generally friendly with the whites and managed to retain a large reservation of more than 9300 square kilometers despite territorial losses. Original Crow plains Indian pipe tomahawk. Large forged iron head forged from an old gun barrel. These style heads are extremely rare! Visible lap weld seam where a hardened still bit was inset into the head. Blacksmiths from the 18th and 19th century would use gun barrel steel to make the tomahawk head. Hand forged on an anvil, oval drift used to form the eye, hard steel bit forge welded in the blade. It doesn’t get any better than this head! Visible forge weld mark (also known as a lap weld) where the head and bit join. Oval shaped ash haft is magnificent. Hot file brandings and old square shank brass tacks. Haft is solid and strong. Haft to head fit is good, there a very very small amount of movement in the head, very small. Most likely caused by the wood drying over the years and shrinking slightly. Magnificent beaded hide drop, lazy stitched bead style, wonderful geometric patterns and Crow seed bead colors. Pipe tomahawks were symbols of power and authority. Beautiful piece, a work of art. The surface of the metal shows a nice patina. 26″ long haft, 11″ long head, 17 long drop.

Authentic Mid 1800's Sioux Indian Spontoon Pipe Tomahawk Forged Iron Head Heart
Plains Indians and tribes all throughout the U. Carried these pipe axes as signs of authority. The stem, or the haft, is ash, and it’s been decorated with hot file branding marks, common to Sioux pipe tomahawks. The head is in great condition, its iron and shows excellent age. Large round quillons identify the spontoon style. The spontoon head does show a few dings and blemishes as expected with a piece this old. A nice inlaid brass heart in the blade. The point of the blade is folded over, its an old sign of damage, old repairs and damage are great and show the tomahawk was used. The haft has some wear but its a solid as a rock. Ceremonial hot file brands are seen along the haft’s length. A single shoulder on the haft, drilled with a single hole that could be used to tie on a beaded drop or old trade beads and buck skin thongs. Makes for a beautiful display! Tomahawk dates 1850 or earlier. The stem is about 2 feet long and the head of the tomahawk is 11 inches long. I hate to sell this but my husband has long since passed away and I need to sell some of his collection to make ends meet. I just hope this goes to a good home, someone who will appreciate it.

Send me your best offers! For sale is a fantastic Indian dag knife circa 1840. Plains Indian origin, most likely Sioux Indian. The blade was cut down at one time in its life and re-handled. The blade may have been a longer buffalo lance blade that was cut down, or a large bowie knife blade re-purposed. Rare buffalo society blade. Large buffalo cutout and double volute dag knife cutout. The handle is tight and secure. Old iron pin with a pewter cap holding the tang in place. Excellent “in the metal” patina on the blade. This knife belongs in a museum or an advanced collection. Its a one of a kind! 17″ long and the blade is 10.25″ long. From my grandfathers estate, he was a lifelong collector of Indian and military artifacts. I guarantee this knife to be genuine and authentic for life. Please ask any questions you may have. I will accept offers on this knife. The Native American Indian and plains buffalo coexisted in an organic balance between nature and man. The American Indian developed a close and many times spiritual relationship with the buffalo. The sacred plains buffalo became an integral part of the evolving religion of the Plains Indian. Their diet of primarily buffalo created a unique physiological relationship. The adage “You are what you eat” was never more applicable than in the symbiotic relationship between the buffalo and the Plains Indian. The Plains Indian culture was intrinsic with the buffalo culture. The two cultures could not be separated without mutual devastation.
