An impressive 19th century Zulu stabbing spear, iklwa, with characteristic long blade and short handle. Blade has some age pitting, and is bound to the handle with typical cow-tail binding. Good, solid, attractive piece with a nice patina. Overall length 54 ins, blade 16 inches long and almost 2 inches wide. A very nice example of the classic iklwa which is so associated with the old Zulu kingdom and with the war of 1879.
