Custom Handmade Tomahawks for Sale & Commission

Larry Gotkin’s custom, handmade tomahawks offer museum-quality, artisan craftsmanship for the serious collector or re-enactor.

Tomahawks are Native American small fighting axes, originally with stone heads mounted in wood handles.

In the 1600s, European traders began providing iron and brass heads to trade with the various tribes, in a great number of variations. Highly decorated versions were presented to tribal leaders as gifts.

The small axe was a useful tool to the settlers as well, and local blacksmiths and gun makers made many fine specimens. The pipe tomahawk was a fairly rare variation, often highly decorated.
