African Congo Ngombe / Doko execution sword,
A grim if not interesting African executioner's sword, probably
19C / early 20C in good condition.
An unusual and evocative sword for sending a condemned man or woman
to the next life. Blade is 18 1/2 inches long and has some nicks
to the cutting edge. Generally aged / worn, ornately marked blade.
I have seen them go for quite a bit more at auction, so a very good
price. Full sized images available upon request. My item reference
number is 966 (553).
