Antique Lakota Sioux Indian Pipe Axe Tomahawk Triple Bat Wing Cutout Wyoming
Original old forged iron trade pipe axe tomahawk. The head is beautifully forged and has an extremely rare triple bat wing cutout. Many Plains pipe tomahawks were made with small piercings, some being holes or weeping hearts. These pipe tomahawks were numerous and easy to come by. This particular style is known as the bat-wing for the shape of one the piercings that resemble the shape of a bat. These tomahawks were more obscure and especially made for high ranking chiefs, war chiefs and particularly notable leaders. Very few are in collections but those that are tend to be very fancy in decoration. Most have file branding, tacks, and specially made hafting. These tomahawks were carried as status symbols, rarely used in battle but carried as a recognition of power and importance. Most batwing tomahawks in collections today have two piercings, one that resembles the shape of a fly and the other a bat. More rare than the double batwing tomahawks, are the triple pierced examples that typically have the third piercing in the form of a heart. The ash wood haft is original to the head. The wood has a nice heavy and dark patina. The handle has been well used and has good wear on it. There are many “hot file” marks along the haft. Three scalloped shoulders of the haft, one containing a hole for attaching a beaded drop or beads or horsehair. A good patina on the surface of the head. The blade is a hawk bill style. This tomahawk needs to be displayed and cherished for future generations to see and appreciate! 24″ haft 12″ head length. No reasonable offer will be refused.

Authentic 1780's sioux indian pipe tomahawk gun barrel head + forged lap weld
Authentic original 1780’s Sioux Indian pipe tomahawk. This example has a highly sought after forged head that was originally a gun barrel. You can clearly see rifle marks inside the bowl. The iron head has a nice “in the metal” patina and shows good use and wear patterns. The head was forged from a gun barrel and there is a nice lap weld seen as pictured. The haft is probably ash, single shoulder hole, and several old brass tacks. The mouth hole is well worn and intact. The head of the tomahawk is almost exactly 8 inches long. Haft is 16.75 long. This is a fine example of a Native American weapon of war and peace pipe in one. If you have a question, please ask. Good luck and God bless the USA! In the early days, even in well-settled areas, iron was expensive. On the frontier the costs of transportation increased the price even. Guns received rough usage and scrap gun barrels became an. Important source of iron. The tomahawk maker was quick to take. Advantage of the cylindrical shape. A drill was not. Necessary for there was already a hole for the bowl, and no dif. Ficult welding was required. After the tube was necked down for. The shank, it was flattened all the length from the shank to its far. A slit was then cut and opened with a drift to form the eye. Sometimes a steel bit was welded to the cutting edge. The bowl made in this manner was long, like the catlinite pipe. Bowls of the Plains Indians. The eye was merely spread at the. Middle and drifted to a diamond cross-section with rounded. The blade had nearly straight edges front and back and. Since this shape did not lend itself to use in combat, it was usually. Such tomahawks are readily identified by the funnel-like. Opening which, with the handle removed, may be seen under the. Sometimes traces of the original rifling of the gun barrel can be. Seen on either side of the eye or bowl. The item “Authentic 1780’s sioux indian pipe tomahawk gun barrel head + forged lap weld” is in sale since Thursday, April 18, 2019.

Fantastic example of 18th century Sioux weaponry. Pipe tomahawks were carried as a sign of power and status but also used to settle treaties and promote peace. This pipe tomahawk is all original and un-restored. A very rare and desirable forged head from a gun barrel. Look closely inside the bowl, there are clearly defined rifling marks.

Original wood stem shows its concentric rings with drilled smoke hole right in the center. Undecorated haft has an excellent look to it, lots of age and wore areas. There is a small amount of bend in the haft from over 200 years of drying. A museum quality pipe tomahawk ready to hang in your collection.

Mid 1800's Sioux Indian Dag Knife Original Trade Knife Forged Blade
Fantastic example of mid 1800’s Sioux weaponry. Large dag knives were carried as a sign of power and status but also served a utilitarian purpose. Original wood handle has good wear patterns along its length. Old brass tacks in a Dutch circle on the pommel. Notice there are some cracks and wood deterioration, this is caused by over 150 years of changes in humidity and temperature causing the wood to dry, shrink, and crack. This is an excellent indicator of age. The handle is tight and secure. The iron blade is a re-purposed buffalo lance blade, most likely cut down and re-handled in this classic dag knife style. It is all original and un-restored. Blacksmiths worked with the Indians who would come to the villages and towns for their work. Also, travelling blacksmiths would be available for work on the open plains and in small villages or outposts. It is common for a blacksmith to re-work a lance blade or bowie blade, sometimes cutlery, into an Indian weapon, for trade. Just a unique and beautiful work of art. A museum quality Plains dag knife ready to display in your collection. 8″ blade, 6 3/4″ handle. 14 3/4 overall length. Widest part of blade is 2 3/8 wide.
