I wasn't really sure where to put this post. But as one of the items is bladed, and they are all weapons for fighting at close quarters, I thought they might fit in here.
The spear is a bit of an oddity. The blade matches the type you would find on an 'iklwa.' But the shaft is more to the length of a throwing spear. The iklwa is a short length spear which was used as a thrusting weapon by the Zulu's to such deadly effect in the wars of 1879.
The length of the blade is 12 inches, and width is 2 inches. Total length of the weapon is 53inches. The balance of the weapon is absolutely perfect. The war club (knobkerry) is just over 28 inches, and the carved head is almost 3 inches wide.
The shield is of a type which was used for every day protection and also when engaging in stick-fighting. At 24 inches in length it is much smaller than the war shield. All three items show considerable age. And I don't think any are tourist junk. If anyone could shed further light on the spear I would be very grateful.
