Default Some African blades for selling

I have assembled some African blades I want to part with.
I will list each knife separately with a price I have in mind, in my opinion very cheap. Swap with South-East-Asian blades is an option!

Please contact me by email: deuterdetlef@gmail.com

Shipping fees:

Germany: 8,- Euro, EU 18,- Euro, US: $55, other destinations on request, shipping with DHL/tracking/insurance

Default Very nice Fang sword

An in my opinion very nice Fang ( Cameroon/Gabon/Equatorial Guinea )sword with nice decorated blade and handle, little loss to the wood, iron and brass nails and brass and copper bands, the upper tips of the blade with brass wire, one intact, the other one complete but opened (I guess that it is an easy job to restore this), the blade nicely engraved at the base, tip of the blade minimal damaged, one serious edge damage/nick, see pictures. Very nice patination overall. No scabbard. 51 cm overall, blade 32,5 cm. 411 gram.

230,00 Euro / US$249
