Overall Condition Fair to poor. Most of our pieces have spent decades on at least two continents, and have been treasured by several owners.   Small splits, scrapes and cracks are a normal part of their patina attesting to their age and extensive use.  We examine each piece carefully when we receive it and report any damage we find in our listings.  Please look carefully at the pictures which may also reveal condition and damage.
Damage/Repair rusting blade, worn patina on wood, holes bent edge, cracked and chipped handle.


Additional Information: This knife is very similar to the example published in African Weapon by Werner Fischer and Manfred A. Zirngibl. 1978, fig. 259 and identified as a Pende knife with off-centered blade and wood handle.  This  is a serviceable knife  carried by individuals of high  rank and status.  The blade could be easily cleaned to return into its original state.
