This pipestone pipe tomahawk was collected in the western United States and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1980. The blade and stem portions are decorated on both sides with different floral motifs. Though the piece was likely made for trade, traces of tobacco residue, called dottle, within the pipe bowl indicate that it was smoked.
