    ~ Circa 1850 Zulu Beehive Iklawa Spear ~


    In Zulu language ‘iklawa’ translates as 'short stabbing spear’, making this spear a close quarters weapon.

    As with all Zulu made stabbing spears this one has a heavy blade attached to a medium-light thick varnished wooden shaft.

    The lower end of the shaft is beautifully carved into a beehive shape and thicker than the main body.

    This is a more carefully crafted piece suggesting that was owned by someone of a superior social rank.

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

    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.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The spearhead length is 13 inches (33 cm) and the overall length of the spear is 45 ½ inches (115 cm).

    It weighs 580 grams.

    ~ Condition ~

    The metalwork has some amount of age pitting.

    The woodwork is excellent.

    The wiring keeping the spear head attached to the shaft is a little frayed.

    ~ Postage ~

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