Very Rare Antique (massive) Sioux Tomahawk, 18th to 19th century Indian Wars
It is massive with 1.08 kg, a characteristic of the very early tomahawks. The metal head/blade was made by the white blacksmiths (interestingly, the logo on blade looks like “Morning Star”, which is very famous to the Indians), and traded to the Indians either directly or via specialized companies (such as the “American Fur Trade Company”). The tribe of tomahawk should be Sioux (according to its origin when acquired and its adornment). It is a rare find nowadays as it is a very early tomahawk decorated with antique red porcupine quills, and a couple of brass tacks and tin cones. Of note, the antique wooden handle (crude cut from tree branch) appears to have some remains of red/redish color, suggesting it had been tinted in red (with pigments) at one time. All is original and antique on this particularly impressive tomahawk. Size (metal head/blade): 7.48 inches. Overall length of tomahawk: 20.47 inches. Weight of tomahawk: 1.08 kg!
