Traditional Stone Hammer. $60.

Stone Hammer Rotated Resized
In indigenous cultures, ancient tools and weapons are still used, both as an art form and ceremonially. Handcrafted the old way by a member of Taos Pueblo’s multi-talented Concha family, this traditional stone hammer is made in the same fashion and of the same materials as the people have done since the dawn of time. A branch of local wood is cut to length, split carefully at one end, and partially stripped by hand, leaving the bark in place near the bottom to ensure a good grip. A stone is selected with equal care, attention given to size, shape, weight, and balance, and then placed in the split end of the wood. Head and handle alike are then wrapped securely with wound and laced strips of dried rawhide.

Wood; stone; rawhide
