African wooden Knob- Kerrie - short

Size: 45cm

A shorter African knob-kerrie, handmade out of hard wood and smooth polished. The Knob-Kerrie as it is known in African terms is a club that is part of the African shield and used as a protective weapon when on attack. This knob-Kerrie is set in the natural color of the Kiaat wood.

Usually on an African shield you will get the Knob-Kerrie,spear and center shaft. This tool was used by Zulu tribesmen as an attacking tool to hit their enemy on the head with a Zulu shield in one hand to protect themselves and the Knob-Kerrie in the other while charging forward. A spear was also used with this tool and would be thrown just before attack and then charge with the Knob-Kerrie.

All sizes listed are approximate. The Zulu Knob-Kerrie you purchase and receive may differ just slightly in size, look, and/or color from the Zulu Knob-Kerrie shown in the picture because each Zulu Knob-Kerrie is handcrafted and hand beaded by individual artists.
