Early example one which the swords of Mau Mau terrorists were base. 11 1/8” d.e. spear shaped blade, double fullered and likely made from a Sudanese kaskara. Tapered hide wrapped grip and matching hide covered scabbard with belt loop. Good age character. The blade sharp with original tool finish. A short and very lethal weapon designed for close in hacking, of the in a frenzy fueled by a hypnotic war dance.
