Our pal, kaintuck sent me this war club he cut from a piece of cherry wood. I'll finish it into something a savage would use to good effect. I ordered brass tacks & something a little more "savage" for a point. ;)

Right now, I dressed the sharp edges on my small belt sander & am applying coats of cherry stain to redden it up. Then some black paint in a certain design - brass tacks of different sizes and a metal spear point.

I took a trip off from work & should have this finished by Monday. We will see.

Pic #1 In the beginning. SW

#2 Did a little sanding & two coats o' cherry stain. Added a more savage "business end" and taped off for black stripes. I'll let it dry overnight & get down to brass tacks tomorrow! 8-) SW

99% done! I was going to add turkey feathers but can't find my genuine artificial sinew. ;) Used a grade school compass to mark out the circles. Managed to break two of the tiny Dremel drill bits, but got-r-done.

Shown with the big toad stabber kaintuck finished for me & the Pietta 1851 I converted to 38 Special for size perspective. If I had access to a horse's tail or mane, I'd make a scalp lock for it. SW

Here's a pic with my pony gun. I went with a more "savage" blade for appearance. Just the ticket for some Lakota or Crow to take along for "socializing"! SW

interesting , i have never researched this type of thing so know nothing of it but i applaud your work as well as kaintuks , these make me remember my youth with my grandfather telling me of the french and indian wars , the trail of tears and my mothers interest in the western expansion , i realize your interest lies in the plains indians , it just stirs so many memories i wish i had spent more time on over the years , nifty bits anyway

Try crazycrow.com. I believe they carry horse tails and may even have scalp locks.
