Zulu wood Knobkerry
Knobkerrie is a one piece wooden walking stick with a fearsome heavy ball end that was used for hunting where it could be thrown at an animal.
The Knobkerry was carried by most men and has a few different names and spellings including Knobkerrie which is its Afrikaan name and also its most popular name. The Zulu's called it the Iwisa.
The knobkerry has a 3ft long shaft with a heavy ball at the head.
The name derives from the Afrikaans word knop, meaning Knot or ball and the Zulu word kierie, meaning cane or walking stick
The knobkerry actual weight is 600grms 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
