A good dagger from the Shona tribes of South Eastern Africa.

This African dagger is 43cms long in the sheath.
Out it is 42.5cms long with a blade length of 29.5cms.
The dagger hilt and sheath are decorated with woven wire, something typically seen on more prestigious items of the regions. The wire work is now unfortunately suffering from wear and loss as seen in the images.
The timber and wire show a very dark age patina.
The blade tip is full and the edges sharp.

A good example of a prestigious knife.
