A Knobkerrie is a strong, short wooden club with a heavy rounded knob or head on one end, traditionally used by Southern African tribes including the Zulu, as a weapon in warfare. The word Knobkerrie derives from the Dutch knop (knob), and the Bushman and Hottentot kerrie (stick).The weapon is employed at close quarters, or as a throwing club. The knobkerrie was emblematic of the Zulu people. A man always carried one, a custom which has not yet disappeared in rural areas. Made of heavy wood, it was an effective weapon, so long as guns were not present!
