Displaying the very finest workmanship and undoubtedly, a prestige possession, probably for a chief. It may have been made as a gift from or to a chief, probably 19th century. 16 1/4" length, of elegant proportions and perfectly symmetrical with 19 ridged crescent form veins and hemispherical terminal forming the head. The haft gracefully swelling in each direction from the middle. The grip decorated in hound's tooth bands. The wood selected for its straight grain which allowed for the fine details where a typical example employed a root ball for the head to benefit from its gnarled grain and growth pattern. Perfect preservation for the period.
