Zeer Goed - 1800

Very rare knife completely handmade from a tribe of South Africa, for ceremonies and hunting, received as a gift from my uncle more than 50 years ago, a very rare piece to find as it dates back to the mid-1800s

The overall knife length is 34.4 CM, the blade is 18.4 CM long, the blade is 1.7 CM wide, the handle is long: 10 CM, and is wide: 2.5 CM, and represents incised in the wood the face of some spirit in which this tribe believes. Even the hilt is made and worked by hand as can be seen from the photos and is 4.7 cm long.

The one offered today is a ceremony and hunting knife practically impossible to find everywhere as it was a gift received from my uncle many years ago. The steel was completely made by the men of this tribe and the handle taken from a piece of bark of their trees and worked by hand with drawings and engravings of spirits in which they believe. It is a very rare piece!

Wonderful collector's item, shipping worldwide as a priority with tracking code.
