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!
