    Anyone recognize this?

    I won't identify where this came from until the giftor speaks up first, or tomorrow morning, which ever comes first.
    The tiny hand forged tomahawk head was sent to me by ............ . This was several months ago. Just now I got real ambitious and finally whittled a handle for it. Handle is red cedar.
    Little hawk will now join my collection of eleven others on a display board.
    Thanks ............... for the neat gift.

    I think the technical term for the little ones like that is "teenyhawk".

    Recognize this?

    Yes:

    It belonged to "Little Beaver" or "Tonto "or was it the "Last Mohican"

    How about a real old Boy Scout and it fell out of its scabbard.

    OK, but, as far as I know, he wasn't the maker.
    Good ole' Dale Johnson. Over the years, he has sent me several goodies related to my reenacting and muzzle loading passions. I surely do appreciate these items.
    For the record (of my collection) I have another small 'hawk. It ranges between the tiny and teeny in size. I wear it on one of my reenactment hats.
