Small Kuba collection for sale
I'm selling part of my African weapons collection, more precisely : my Kuba weapons.

Here is a picture of the whole lot.

From left to right :

- Kuba axe
- Small 'Nshaal'knife with copper blade
- 'Nshaal' knife with iron blade and rattan repair to the handle
- old 'ikul' or 'ikulbapyaang' knife with special handle
- old 'ikul' or 'ikulbapyaang' knife, old blade with new handle
- wooden 'ikulimbaang' (?) knife
- big 'ikul' or 'ikulbapyaang' knife with engraved copper blade and decorated handle
- big 'ikul' or 'ikulbapyaang' knife with old iron blade (special shape) and decorated handle
- old 'ikul' or 'ikulbapyaang' knife with weathered wooden handle

I'll be listing these knives on ebay belgium, but if one of the forum members 'fancies' one or more of these knives, I will stop the auction (if there are no bids, of course).

At wish, I can send more detailed pics of a specific knife.

If someone is interested in the whole lot, I'm sure we can come to an agreement. Just send me an offer.

Correction : the small 'Nshaal' also has an iron blade.

Here's the link for ebay :

Hello Freddy,

Please could you give me an indicative price for the ikul with copper blade and also the one with specially shaped blade (2nd an 3rd from the right), free delivered Prague (in Czech republic). What is your opinnion - how old are this two knives ?

Thank you,

Sorry, Martin. These two are already gone.

Both came from the collection of an elderly man living near Brussels. I bought his collection a few years ago and these two were among the lot. That's all I can say about the age.

No problem Freddy - this is life.
