A Circa 19th Century Zulu Warrior’s large knobkerrie. Knobkerrie, also spelled knopkierie or knobkerry, are clubs used mainly in Southern and Eastern Africa. Typically they have a large knob at one end and can be used for throwing at animals in hunting or for clubbing an enemy's head. This knobkierie is hand crafted from the ‘heart wood’ (strongest part of the tree) of a tropical hard wood tree to form the knob and crafted to create the shaft. The club measures 29” in length. The bulbous ‘hammer’ head is 3” diameter & would create devastating injuries if used as a weapon. The well defined heart wood can clearly be seen in image 2. The hammer head and shaft have stable surface cracks, knocks and bumps to be expected with age. The shaft has a 2 ½” section of original iron wire binding at the top end where it meets the hammer head. The price for this knobkerrie includes delivery. Sn 15012
