Antique Hand Forged 18th Century 1700 Fancy Belt Axe Indian Trade Tomahawk Rare For Sale
Here we have a RARE ffind and that would be an antique blacksmith made ssmall belt axe with some "fancy" file work.These little hammer poll axes were carried by the colonist and settlers on the frontier as well as the native americans. They were used not only as a small general purpose tool but also as a weapon if needed. While always hard to date something like this exacvtly it is OLD and was made in the same manner as ones were back then and is in the same form as others from this time period, please see my photos which shows everything well. Head measures about 6 inch across with a 2 1/4 inch cutting edge. head is forged and NOT cast and has a punched eye. The long Hammer poll is octagon shapped and is very well made with defining linesat the base on the sides. The base of the blade has some other decorative lines filed in as well.Please see my photos which shows all this better then I can descride it. As is to be expected with something of this age the head has some rusting with light to moderate pitting.Doesn't look to be an excevated piece or a relic and I don't think detracts. Has a very nice 13 inch handle, probably not the axe's original but it was in it when I found this axe up in Pennsylvania and looks OLD. condition of the handle is at least Very Good, some age checks and some loss to the end, again please see my phtos. Some slight wiggle to the head from the handle shrinking...Really a supurb early hammer poll belt axe that has been in my collection for many years but my girlfriend has comvinced me to send them down the road!...Starting sale off low with and as alwys actul postage charged depending on where you live [weighs just over 1 lb boxed to ship],
