This is a interesting Old Circular Wrist Knife, or “Ararait”, of the Turkana Tribe in Kenya. The knife is made out of rectangular piece of sheet metal iron, then hammered and bent into a disk shape with flat upper and lower surfaces. The outer edge is curved and sharpened. Although the ends nearly touch at the outer tips, they have been cut at an angle so that they slope in and away from each other towards the center of the knife. The center has an oval hole to accommodate the wrist. A leather strip guards the wrist from the interior of the blade. Another strip wraps the outer edge in day-to-day wearing, and it is removed for battle. This is unique artifact from the Turkana tribe and would be a wonderful addition to your home or collection.
