PH51 - Hand-Forged Pipe-Tomahawk
This is a brand new, original, historically influenced, hand-forged pipe-tomahawk that I forged in my blacksmith shop, The North River Forge. I specialize in hand-forged reproductions of the 18th and 19th centuries. They have an authenticity rarely found in other maker's work. Each piece is unique.
Dimensions: Head overall 7 3/4" - Cutting edge 2 1/4" wide.
Haft: Ash wood, 18" long. Drilled. Decorated with a partial rawhide wrap and brass tacks.
Construction: Traditional 18th. century construction. Head is hand-forged from 1018 steel with a piece of high carbon 1084 steel welded for the cutting edge.
Finish: Brut de Forge.
Special Features: Filework on front and side of the blade. The pipe is fully functional and can be smoked. Forged clean out plug. Leather blade guard/sheath. Turned bowl.
This pipe-tomahawk is stamped with my makers mark NR.
Great for re-enactors or collectors who crave tradition. Hand-forged in the traditions of long ago. It is a reminder of an era past. A very nice reproduction pipe-axe that will take and keep a good edge. It has never been carried or used. Functional as well as beautiful. A classic 18th century design.
Price: $425.00 plus $18 shipping. (USA - Canada)
