European Trade Axe / Tomahawk

Description

A tomahawk forged from a semi finished hammer head. The hammer heads were never heat treated and had been stored for decades in a warehouse before I acquired them. As such the steel is perfect to be up-cycled and re-forged into a small axe.
The haft is hand carved from ash wood and treated with linseed oil. Both the edge and the spike is heat-treated and sharpened. A vegetable tanned leather sheath is included with every axe.

Tomahawks make for great little carving axes and the spike serves the same purpose as a pickaroon. I use one around the shop and garden, for picking up and moving logs, chopping small branches and doing basic wood carvings.

The handle is a traditional friction-fit tomahawk handle. The wooden handle should be considered a consumable and are easily swapped out should they break.

Tomahawks are also referred to as European trade axes since they were produced by Europeans and sold to native Americans, who at the time didn’t have the means to produce steel.

**NOTICE**
Make sure that you comply with your local import and weapons regulation and have all appropriate licensing before ordering.
