Forged Presentation Scalloped Pipe Tomahawk

Sold: $775

A large and beautiful presentation-grade pipe tomahawk, hand-forged from a carbon steel ball-pein hammer. The goblet pipe bowl has a hand-filed rim with a pinched ring stem, and sits on an octagon base. The eye is heavy, with a single fuller below the pipe and a double fuller at the base of the blade. The lower edge of the blade has three scallops with a false edge. The top of the blade has vine filework along the spine and is patinaed in a dark brown. A steel 'flower' tack adorns each side of the eye. The blade is fitted to the haft with a leather gasket, which was often used to make an airtight fit for smoking.

The haft is premium curly maple, prepared with aqua fortis and stained a rich dark mahogany. The upper portion of the grip is scalloped to complement the blade. The lower grip has two pair of narrow pewter bands, above and below a larger pewter band. Each band also has incised lines around their circumferences. 

The mouthpiece and cleanout plug are turned from solid elk antler tips. The cleanout plug has a matching steel tack and a brass cleaning pick.

The presentation tomahawk measures 24", and the head is 7" long, with a 2.25” edge.
