Used throughout the French and Indian Wars and American Revolution, known as a
“narrow waisted” axe, these were used by British and Colonial soldiers as well as
Indians. Early eared fighting head with a slight taper, 8 ½” long, retaining its original
sharp edge. Old hickory haft, but likely not the original. Overall length 14 3/4″. A
weapon of choice among the Iroquois tribes. From the John Baldwin collection and
pictured in Who’s Who In Indian Relics, Vol. No. 10, p.191. An extremely rare early
authentic spike tomahawk from the Revolutionary War.
