Description: This pipe hawk by Raymond Richard continues in the fine tradition of primitive knives and hawks. Around 1725, a clever frontier trader added a pipe bowl to the already popular tomahawk and the pipe hawk was born. This hawk variation soon became very popular, as it combined both an effective tool for fighting or husbandry with a way to enjoy the popular vice of the time - tobacco.
Raymond Richard has created a stunning piece. The head was forged to shape from 1080 carbon steel and was antiqued. The circular bowl is perfectly formed. The haft and mouthpiece are formed from curly maple with a nice mix of dark and light tones and beautiful chatoyancy.
The head measures 6 3/4 in across, with a 2 1/2 in cutting edge. The haft measures 22 1/2 inches overall.
The hand forged, patinaed head along with the classic curly maple haft give this tomahawk a powerful, rustic appearance. This pipe tomahawk is an wonderful addition to any hawk collection.
