Hello everyone.. I don't know if this has been posted, but check this out and have fun looking at these genuine tomahawks, trade axes etc. The Iroquois examples are very interesting.. I never knew some spike hawks were referred to "belly rippers"

Enjoy .. Maybe design your next hawk from these examples..

I'm going to guess some of you know this already but the term "Let's bury the hatchet"or "Tomahawk" came about from these dual purpose pipe/hawks. By driving the cutting edge either into the ground or a chunk of wood you left exposed only the pipe side of tool thus declaring your friendship or peace intentions so "Lets bury the hatchet" became a term to mean lets be friends or "lets end the quarrel"
