This Cameroon sword has an old iron blade in typical form (widening at the top) and is decorated with vertical grooves. The combination of the blade with the decorated wooden hilt, the elaborate scabbard and the Ndop cloth belt transformed this sword into a symbol of prestige and even ostentation. It was carried in parades and demonstrations of notable leaders, chiefs, and kings.
Please note that since the scabbard is made from animal skin, this lot might cause issues with customs.
Sword total length approx. 57 cm, sheath length approx. 48 cm
