Zulu Wars: Early style Iklwa
Old Ulundi District, Kwa Zulu Natal
Blade 8 ½ inches smoked patina, leaf
Visible Shank: 6 inches
Haft/shaft: 40 inches, slender, flared base, dark patina
This spear is of the style popular shortly after Shaka's death.
It did not have the problem of removal after stabbing, as was
the case with the famous "Shaka iklwa".
