This beautiful Zulu iwisa dates to the late 19th Century and was probably a Zulu War battlefield trophy brought to the UK by a returning British soldier. The iwisa was a very important weapon to the Zulu, second only to the iklwa. Traditionally a Zulu warrior carried an iklwa (stabbing spear), iwisa (club) and two isijula (throwing spears).

The large head has a depth of 70mm and a circumference of 238mm.

The 790mm slightly curved haft has a beautiful grain patten which has opened slightly in one small area (shown). The haft is marked with an X and the end of the haft has a step. These could be ownership marks – like writing one’s name on a prized possession. The haft flares towards the stepped end. 

The iwisa has a total length of 860mm and is in excellent condition. A beautiful and tactile Anglo-Zulu War collectable that will enhance any collection.
