The Zulu warrior carried as weapons the spear of attack, the iklwa (so vital that its loss could be punished with execution) and the mallet or iwisa, made of hard wood that they used to hit enemies. Zulu officers often carried a Zulu ax, but this weapon was actually more of a symbol of their rank. The iklwa - so named because of the sucking sound it produced when being extracted from a human body - with its long and broad blade was an invention of Shaka (known as Shaka Zulu, tribal chief, who turned this small tribe into the nation most powerful warrior in Africa) and that replaced the old ipapa de launch (named for the 'pa-pa' sound that was heard when flying through the air).

This spear could be used in close-range fighting and as a throwing weapon, but while Shaka reigned, warriors were forbidden to throw them, as they would be left unarmed and give opponents a weapon to throw at. Shaka believed that the long spear discouraged warriors in hand-to-hand combat. Shaka's brother and successor, Dingane advocated a greater use of the throwing spear, perhaps to try and counter Boer firearms.

Accompanied by a leather shield, this spear is the perfect size for close combat. It has a high carbon tempered steel blade. Wooden handle reinforced with brass wire. The Zulu 'Iklwa' is a must for history buffs or military weapons collectors.
