KNF598 Zulu Iklwa Short Spear

Zulu Iklwa Short Spear
Zulu Iklwa Short Spear

Zulu ikwla Spear which is a shorter-style assegai for stabbing

This is a wood and metal replica of the classic ikwla spear used by Zulu warriors during the Anglo-Zulu War 1879 in South Africa including the Famous battles of Isandlwana and Rorke's Drift. The ikwla was a fearsome weapon with a wide 16" long steel blade mounted on a 29" wood shaft it could wielded in battle due to its compact size when compared to the much longer throwing spears. This replica has blunt blade edges.

The Ikwla was introduced in the 1820's by King Shaka who preferred the close quarter combat. By drawing the enemy close the Zulu warrior who would knock the enemy off guard with his shield and then stab him in his exposed body.

Most Zulu warriors went to battle with a ikwla, a shield, an assegai and throwing spears. This was the case on the morning of the 22nd January 1897 when they attached the 24th foot at Isandlwana.

This spear was known as the iklwa for the sound that was heard as it was withdrawn from the victim's wound.

The spear actual weight is 500grms but due to Royal mail post restrictions on size it can only be sent by parcel force so  the weight has a false weight of 2001grms
