The Zulu African Spear is based on the Iklwa, a famous short-staffed, large-bladed spear that carved out one of the greatest early African nations. The spearhead of this weapon is made of tempered high carbon steel with a brass wire-reinforced socket and wood shaft. Historically used with a cowhide shield, this spear was sized for a deadly underhand stabbing fighting style that is said to be named for the sound it made as it entered the enemy. The Zulu Iklwa is a must for history buffs or collectors of military weapons.
