Inspired by Chingachgook’s War Club in the Movie Last of the Mohicans and A piece of Diamond Willow driftwood I whittled this Indian War Club. After a little sanding I finished with some pure tung oil.
The blade was forged by a local blacksmith out of steel cable and the strap whas sewn by an Aunt out of scrap cotton fabric.

Very cool. Rustic and primitive art at it’s best.

That is too pretty to be as seriously frightening as it looks!
