Pipe Ax by William Buchele

This piece was made late 50-60's time period. The wood is hard curly maple with the grain as figured as maple comes with tobacco stain. The tomahawk head was Bills' design based on early English pipe axes, fitted with a brass engraved bowl, teepees and long stem pipes. The blade has Rococo designs engraved as well. The handle has 2 silver arrows with engraved borders. There is a 3 piece silver mouthpiece. Between the 2 arrows is a classic Federal style finely engraved eagle with wings spread flanked by silver wire inlay. The overall length is 17 inches and the head is 6 5/8 long.
