A very rare Khond tribe Indian fighting axe.

At 55cms tip to tip, this a rather light but very effective fighting axe with a 20cms cutting edge.
The haft is approx 39cms long. It is incised with three bands of decoration.
The axe head is forged and of an unusual shape, but typical to the regions and could be as old as the 17th century. The head sits high on top of the shaft and curves forward. The positioning of the axe head makes it a very capable thrusting weapon as well as devastating cleaver.

A very good and rare axe from Central India.
