A large African knife with European blade.

This very good example measures 56cms long in the sheath.
Out of the sheath 55cms long with a blade length of 41.5cms.
The leather work is typical of the Manding regions of Central Western Africa.
The hilt is bound, stitched and coloured in the same manner as the sheath, with the sheath showing tooled surfaces to both sides and brass tacks to one.
The large, broad cutlery style blade is in excellent condition. To the left face of the blade there is the makers name "Joseph Beal & Sons" with their early boars head trade mark beneath.

A splendid knife in fine condition throughout.
