CA 1910 - Good condition
A special knife of the Mangbetu, also called trumbash, the handle is carved out of ivory with a heavy forged iron blade.
These type of knives mostly had a wooden handle and are less frequently found with an ivory handle.
The handle has a nice tribal patina.
Total size 37.5 cm
Width 20.5 cm
Length of the handle 13.5 cm
Good condition with normal age cracks in the ivory handle
There is an extensive chapter about these types of knives in the book "white gold black hands vol 8" from which I show some pictures.
