Can no one help with this ?

It could be a spear from the Asmat people, New Guinea.
That was my first thought.

thanks Matt ... any refs for similar types ?

Unfortunately not, the lower part under the spear tip is mostly carved open.
Google will give some examples.

what is the blade made of? Is the picture the point and socket?

Hi Tim,

To me it looks wood. And it is point and socket to me. Do you have another suggestion?
