|This decorative, early 20th century pipe-axe (RLK2) was purchased in March of 1988 at a shop in Ft. Collins, Colorado where a Native American named Night Walker was selling items from his personal collection, as well as those from others of the Northern Plains reservation to which he belonged in order to support needy tribal members. The axe, with an 18” long pipe stem wood handle, has an 8 7/8” long cast brass axe head stamped ‘Canada’ and a stamped arrow touch-mark pointed down towards the top of an ‘E’. A cut-out heart can be seen just above the arrow and a similar symbol has been carved into the wood handle. The brass tack design has been partially replaced with newer tacks, and the beaded leather tassel has some later beads. Where previously worn, the end of the handle has been carved to a smoking tip. In excellent condition, the axe comes with a small display card and our certificate guaranteeing authenticity.
