Fin Back Ball Club by Todd Bitler

A Great Lakes Eastern Woodlands Club which is stylized after an original war club from a Canadian museum collection. This hand carved single piece construction is from a hardwood root burl. The front of the ball and top of the handle has a carved fin or spine like protrusions replicated from the original. The handle is faceted and ends with a lanyard hole also like the original. This club has been stained dark and aged to resemble hard use in battle.
