This type was used by Washington's army, issued one to about every six men. A utility camp-axe, it was also a deadly weapon of last resort. The cold-rolled steel head has a hardened tool steel bit sandwiched into it and the hammer marks of the blacksmith who made it are clearly visible. The eye has a one degree taper so the head cannot fly off. The head on this tomahawk measures 6 1/4" long and the hickory handle is about 19" long.
