Good early example of late 19th-early 20 century. 25 1/4” length with well forged medially ridged blade of form similar to the long lion spears but without the basal expansion. Seamless leather-covered grip (excellent) over round wood core. Original blind stitched hide over wood scabbard, age shrunk preventing the blade from entering full length. Broad leather shoulder belt with thong tie.  Good untouched example with quality and workmanship indicative of this early period. Prior to European colonization in the early 20th century, the Maasai dominated the Great Rift Valley. Maasai warriors were much feared and preyed on the Dinka, Kikuyu, and their other neighbors, stealing cattle and occasionally settling feuds. Maasai swords from this early period are rarely encountered. The vast majority of this form date to the Mau Mau Uprising of 1952-60 and are of Kikuyu origin.
