A well above average Cameroon / Central African throwing knife.

Sales enquiries

Used by both foot and mounted warriors, these throwing knives are the reason African war horses were given leg armour. Also traded as currency and held as signs of virtue. Nice piece; is originally from the Eastman Collection in San Francisco (1976). Full sized images available upon request. My item reference number is 967.
