Up for auction is a Pipe Tomahawk by White Wolf.... .(Ebay Power Seller)..... blacksmith, knife maker, tomahawk maker and custom knife sheath maker.......... and creator of "museum quality" American Indian weapons since 1967.

This pipe tomahawk will be custom made for you with your choice of hearts, stars, diamonds or "man-in'the-moon".....as pictured. You will have your choice of inlay & top plate materials...brass, German silver, copper. You can specify light, medium or dark colored haft, and also the amount of "aging" on the head, from light to radical. You can also choose the length of the haft, measured under the head...19" is standard. Shipping date is usually 7 - 10 days from purchase.

This tomahawk is typical in styling to originals of the late 1700's and early 1800's on the American frontier. It is not a copy of an original tomahawk but has characteristics of the early Phase I and Phase II period tomahawks, according to John Baldwin, a collector and author of, "Tomahawks and Pipe Axes of the American Frontier".

The carbon steel head is by R. E. Davis but has been modified (blade shape)... and will have decorative filework on top of the blade. It will be hardened and tempered in the forge and can be used just like the originals. Of interest is that the head is the "facet head" or "gun barrel" style and the octagon bowl mimics the muzzle loading rifle barrels from which many originals were made.

The haft will be Premium curly maple and can have up to (2) poured "pewter" bands, a pewter mouthpiece and your choice of inlays ( see above, in Red ), one on each side between the pewter bands. The top plate will have decorative filework and the clean-out plug will be hickory.

The pipe will be drilled and can be smoked. All pewter on this tomahawk will be "lead-free".

The total length of the head measures 6-5/8" long. The blade is 3-5/8" long with a 2-3/8" cutting edge.

The haft, measured under the head, will be 19", unless otherwise specified. The total, overall length is approximately 21" with a 19" haft.

This fine pipe tomahawk will be well made, light and will feel great in the hand. The balance will be superb! It comes with an edge that is file sharpened for camping or period reenactments. As with most of my weapons it will carry a "tastefully aged" finish (you choice of degree of aging), will have the warmth and charm of an antique and will be of "museum quality".
