This is a wonderful old Ngombe Tribe Fetish Knife with Tradition Wire Wrapped around the Wooden Handle from Northeastern Zaire. Once a formidable symbol of power, the iron and wood executioner’s sword has thankfully been transformed into a ceremonial dance sword since the Belgians outlawed its use in 1900. As symbols of power over life and death, African ritual swords were rarely employed in the execution of ordinary criminals who had been condemned to die. Forged by Ngombe blacksmiths, but used by a number of groups in the area of northwestern D.R. Congo. between the Congo and Ubangi rivers. This would be a lovely item to compliment your home or collection.
