Available Custom Hand-Forged Pipe-Tomahawks




During colonial times, the pipe-tomahawk was by far the most popular type of tomahawk. No other type was forged in so many different designs and materials.

First appearing in the early years of the 18th. century, pipe-tomahawks quickly became popular among the accoutrements of the Native American Indian.

The British called them "smoak tomahawks" and the French as a calumet, but they were symbols of both war and peace combined in a single instrument.

The inventor of the pipe-tomahawk is unknown, but in all probability, it was a blacksmith who had the terrific idea of forging a pipe bowl on top of a trade or boarding axe, visualizing the attraction that it would have as a trade item on the vast North American frontier.
