Mesquite Root Ball War Club II for Sale

Price: $400

Add to Cart

Ball-headed war clubs were used by the Eastern and Plains Indians during the 16th through 19th centuries, similar to the gunstock war club. Often made from the root ball of a hardwood tree, these clubs were durable and efficient weapons.

This unique and beautiful club is hand-carved from a single piece of highly-figured local mesquite root, oiled and rubbed to a soft glowing natural finish. The scalloped-grip club is carved along the root axis, and is almost entirely dark heartwood, with a stripe of lighter wood along the back. The ball end is 3” in diameter, finished with a 2” long forged steel heart-shaped blade. An elk skin lanyard ties below the grip. The club is 20" long.
