Frontier Trappings

Trade Pipe Tomahawk

The North American Tomahawk  dates back to the fur trade of 1650 to around the 1870 though the Cherokee had adopted the pipe tomahawk around the 1750’s as it presented symbols of both war and peace.

 

These tomahawk weapons were named after the English medieval pole-arm,  a close combat weapon around the 14th century and were eventually modified in various different styles into a battle axe.

 

Overall length of shaft 18 inches approx with a hole through the middle.

Overall length of blade to pipe 7 1/2 inches approx made in one piece steel

Rifleman’s Hawk

Made from precision drop forge 1055 carbon steel giving its strength and its razor sharpness with a hexagonal hammer on the back of the blade making this hawk a nice workhorse for the frontier’s man, the American hickory 22 inch shaft makes it well balanced for throwing.

 

This hawk is slightly larger than the Pipe Hawk and has a larger hexagonal hammer section at the opposite side to the blade.

Made in America

Authentic Reproduction Pharo Playing Cards

Originally made by the New York Card Company, Samuel Hart & Co around 1849.

Early cards of this time did not have numbers until 1870.  Cards also had square corners in the early years, the King, Queen and Jacks had a full figure but  glossy coatings were not produced until around the 20th century.

It was quite common that as soldiers went on to the battlefield they would empty out their bags of any ill repute contents so that if they were killed in battle, playing cards and other items would not be found on them, to give them a bad reputation to their family if found.
