This offering is for an outstanding cane sugar hatchet in the form of an early tomahawk. These fanciful hatchet hammer combinations were used to break apart the early sugar cones made from cane sugar which apparently tended to quite hard. The beautiful example is made of hand wrought iron, decorated with a tulip on one side of the blade and a large letter K on the other. The tulip decoration also has the date 1903 worked into the decoration. The hatchet retains what appears to be the original wooden handle featureing an equally outstanding design of multiple deeply turned rings. The hatchet was likely made as a gift for a loved one, in the Ohio or Pennsylvania area.
