This is a very unique Old Kuba Ceremonial Spear Knife in an Elaborate Cowrie Shell and Raffia Sheath from the Congo. Metal weapons were carried not only for protection, but have symbolic meaning during bride negotiations and held practical value as well. African's were known for crafting unique weaponry during the pre colonial era which were then used for various activities like war, grazing, traditional ceremonies and some even for prestige. Special royal daggers were carved and were kept in covers of hand-woven raffia (palm fiber) and cowrie shells. This knife is an indicators of tribal status and a source of tremendous pride for the owner. Knives like this were especially crafted for a noted warrior and paraded during special occasions. This old knife and sheath is truly beautiful and would be a wonderful addition to your collection of home.
