Made specifically for thrusting through a Red Coat! Anglo-Zulu War of 1885. Small medially ridged leaf shaped point with dimpled transition to the long bolster. Long hide wrapped socket and tapered haft. The small head would have been ineffective for tribal warfare where a unprotected opponent was susceptible to the cutting edge or thrusting point of the classic assegai. The thick cloth of the English military uniform necessitated a much smaller thrusting point as slashing with the spear was entirely ineffective. 46 3/4” length. The point with smooth dark patina. Socket wrap dry and complete. Haft with good patina.
