Akin to the North American Tomahawk, these war weapons were made of both stone and copper. The beveled and slender Axe Heads were attached to fire hardened wooden handles in the center. Affixed by animal sinew or twine (wet, then allowed to harden), they were effective in hacking through wood (and flesh). The Tlaximaltepozlti was documented by The Spanish as a Meleee weapon. They ranged from 2.5 to 3 feet in length.
