Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice example of the classic ZULU Warrior's knobkerrie battle club.

Shaft measures 24 inches in length including heavy 4" diameter hardwood ball head. The neck immediately under the ball for a depth of almost 4" is bound in neatly woven fine copper wire.

An upmarket knobkerrie that was brought home to England as a "war trophy" by some red jacketed British Infantryman who was very grateful to return in one piece.

To think these Zulu knobkerries and Zulu spears were what the Martini Henry equipped soldiers were facing. Says a lot for the bravery of the Zulus warriors!
