Zulu war club

length: 24"
head circumference: 9"
shaft: 21 3/4"
weight: 15.6 oz

Zulu war club from Ulundi, South Africa. This type of weapon is usually referred to as a "knobkerrie", but that nomenclature was imposed by the Dutch south Afrikaans and is not a native term. Nasty medium-sized club with a solid head and braided brass and copper wire decorations.
