Hand-Forged Pipe Tomahawk

Explore the world of historic trades at Conner Prairie’s annual Arts and Arms Making Workshop as you work alongside some of the nation’s best craftsmen.

Join blacksmiths Nathan Allen and Dwight Gallian in making a traditional hand-forged pipe tomahawk. Starting with an iron blank, you’ll use a coal forge and traditional blacksmithing techniques to forge the head of the tomahawk the first day of class. The next two days will be spent at the bench filing the head, handling the tomahawk and applying finishing touches, like pewter inlay. Tools and materials required.

$350 ($340/member)
Ages 18+
