Original Victorian Era Zulu Assegai Fighting Spear with Shortened Bamboo Shaft - circa 1880

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. We have never seen a ZULU Stabbing Spear such as this with a Bamboo haft, but we were also not there at the times of the ZULU WARS. This is clearly a Victorian era African spear with a hand forged head of 16 1/2" with the very tip broken off. The widest part of the blade is 3 1/4" across, again not like any Zulu Spear we have previously encountered.

This came to us from a South African Family Collection with the insistence that this is indeed a ZULU item collected by then on site in Zululand. The Haft is bamboo and has been sawed off so only 16" of it's length is still visible.

Offered totally uncleaned with rust, exactly as we got it. Untouched for quite some time and ready for display!


Overall Length: 32"

Shaft Length: 16"
