African spear Zulu isijula Throwing spear www.swordsantiqueweapons.com


A very fine Zulu isijula.

This example is a near match to stock number s750. Both came as a pair from a collection and both clearly show to be made by the same hands.
Over all the spear is 132cms. The spear head is 37cms including the iron shaft.
The shaft is made from a very fine honey coloured timber and is well carved and finished, showing a broad rounded butt and a narrow taper to the spear head.
The spear head is expertly bound by plaited bands of sinew.

A very fine example of a Zulu throwing spear.
