A good example of an African 19th Century Warrior’s Fighting Sword. This sword has a large and wide double-edged fighting blade with a series of incised fullers and simple geometric decoration. The hilt is quite unusual and has a distinctive triangular ribbed iron pommel upon which is placed another inverted triangular shape. Am not sure which specific tribe would have carried this particular sword but is it reminiscent of swords found in the Congo area of Africa. The grip is wrapped in interwoven pieces of leather. Condition of the sword is very good for its age and there is a fine age patina to the blade. Also has a good weight and balance in the hand. This is not a tourist piece and is very much a substantial and effective fighting sword. Blade length is 23 inches (30.5 inches overall).
