Default Knobkerrie but not sure of from where

Hi
Just picked this up.

Not Zulu as the head tapers on to the handle gently as opposed to where the shaft is squared off to the head on Zulu examples

long at 32 inch and the ball is only around 2 inches in diameter
wood is V v dense and it sinks like a stone in water

so I think somewhere between Northern south Africa and Mali but the timber density might help narrow down a bit

any other ideas

Regards

Ken
