Type used for the execution and hideous dismemberment of slaves for human consumption (cannibalism) witnessed and reported by Glave in 1890. By Glave's account, captured slaves were lashed in the sitting position to a group of poles near a sapling which was pulled down and attached by a rope to a basket enclosing the victim's head. The neck was severed with a stroke of the sword and the head flung with onlookers following and kicking it around in a soccer-like game. Glave reports that the baskets of body parts, dismembered for sale for human consumption, contained some with tattoos which he recognized as those of slaves he had seen bound alive the previous day. A fine example of this iconic and barbaric weapon. 26 ¾” length overall. The blade with glossy patina. Old insect damage to the hilt.
