    ~ Circa 1825 Zulu Damascus Iklwa Spear ~


    This is a pre-Zulu War traditional stabbing spear with a heavy folded steel blade attached to a medium-light thick varnished wooden shaft. The lower end of the shaft is slightly thicker than the main body.

    In Zulu language ‘iklawa’ translates 'short stabbing spear’.

    The shaft of this spear is a later replacement.

    The metal spike is inserted into the shaft by splitting the top of it in two and is tied together with cream coloured leather.

    The quality of the steel used to forge these spears is superior to the throwing ones. Being a non-disposable weapon the spike is longer thicker and stronger than normal. The blade has file marks on its entire surface starting from the middle towards the edge. This procedure helps modifying the edge from a plain sharp pattern to a micro saw pattern, making it more efficient in hand to hand combat.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The spearhead length is 17 ½ inches (44.5 cm) and the overall length of the spear is 47 ½ inches (120.5 cm).

    It weighs 670 grams.

    ~ Condition ~

    The metalwork is excellent, free of rust or damage.

    The replacement wooden shaft remains undamaged too.

    ~ Postage ~

    Postage is £22 or it can be picked up from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
