    ~ Circa 1870 Zulu Isijola Throwing Spear #2 ~


    This is a pre-Zulu War traditional throwing spear with a medium-heavy blade attached to a light thin varnished wooden shaft.

    The metal blade is inserted into the shaft by splitting the top of it in two and is tied together with a twisted tree bark softened at the time of manufacture most probably by boiling.

    The steel colour is specific to the southern African and in general to the southern hemisphere made blades, distinguishable due to the high percentage of impurities in the metal.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The spearhead length is 11 inches (28 cm) and the overall length of the spear is 58 inches (142 cm).

    It weighs 260 grams.

    ~ Condition ~

    The metalwork is excellent, free of rust or damage.

    The wooden shaft overall condition is good with a splint toward its lower end. The splint was glued back at one point in time. Please refer to the pictures.

    ~ Postage ~

    Postage is £18 or it can be picked up from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. ...Read full description
