Fresh out of the workshop!! Plains style war club. The club head is made out of catlinite which is what they used for the bowls of their pipes. It's a soft stone easily worked with hand, files, etc. It's also known as pipe stone for the above mentioned reason. Pipestone, MN has a well known quarry where this stone was acquired. (https://www.nps.gov/pipe/index.htm) The long handle (meant for use on horseback) is covered in stitched rawhide using real sinew. It's also stained with red ocher. Attached is a brain tanned buffalo tail stained with red ocher and beaded at the top with a single hawk bell. A red ribbon and a spoil of war complete the club Hope you enjoy!!
