African stabbing spear Zulu Nguni/Ngoni iklwa www.swordsantiqueweapons.com


An interesting African fighting spear, iklwa.

The overall length of this spear is 122cms. The large spear head is 28cms long and 5cms wide.
The timber shaft has a large bulbous end just under 10cms in length to the base which is carved in tribal designs.
The area where the head joins the shaft has a repaired split as seen in the images. It retains part of it's original leather binding and is now bound with an early fabric type military coloured cord.

A good and unusual fighting spear that had seen use in colonial conflicts.
