Trumbash Knife - Mangbetu People - D.R. Congo (LS 140)
The Mangbetu used the Trumbash to cut
trees to prepare the land for farming
and prepare the wood for construction.
If necessary, the Trumbash could be used
as a lethal weapon in battles between the
Mangbetu & Azande. Today, it has become
a peaceful work weapon.
