Ngombe Throwing Knife - Congo (Ex. Smiley Collection)

$1,250.00
Forged by expert Ngombe blacksmiths, the knives were once used as weapons and then later served as money. Throwing knives displayed an astounding array of design variation and each was an African invention that developed nowhere else in the world. Since all the branches had cutting edges, they were effective from every approach.
Several peoples like the Ngbaka, Azande and Ngombe etc used similar throwing knives.
