Recent Tomahawk

This is the latest tomahawk.  Made of knapped Texas flint, hafted into a hardwood handle.  Deer hide is sewn over the handle and blade lashings.  It is decorated with seed beads, horsehair locks, coyote fur, and feathers.  Puruse some of the older posts to see pics of prehistoric tomahawks and read some of the history and lore behind the tool.

We met you several years ago at a renaissance fair and at a Boy Scout event. My husband bought your bowdrill kit (and has used it to demonstrate for lots of Scouts) and we bought one of your knives for our son. He really wanted to buy your flint knapping kit, but we said not until he is 13. Well, his 13th birthday is at the end of this month. I would like to purchase a kit from you if possible. Please contact me via our vendor website: www.faireandfowl.com Thanks! Kathy
