Shame about the damage. Mine is 1006 g You can feel how a good edge on hit with on of these would snap bone. Also capable of opening the flesh on bony parts of the body. Ouch :eek: !!!

I think the Solomon Islands are a very good area for collection. The cannibal frisson link to Fijian clubs is just as relevant to some 19th century Solomon Islands. Many forms are no less common...

Bandook that is a nice looking club. 55 cm x 6 cm seems odd size when I look at mine. My club of this type is 45 cm long not including the tassel with a head diameter of 15 cm and weighs 1.104 kg....

This club was on show in the Berlin Ethnographic museum when I visited 2011. It was labelled as being Northern Argentina. Northern Argentina is in The Guarani language sphere.

I meant to leave a bid on this one. I like it. I would think it is from the Sudan or there abouts. Leather in not normally seem on South American things but there is always an exception. You got...

I was watching that one. It is quite a bit smaller than the examples I uploaded earlier. It does look like a good club with some age. Not a recent tourist piece.

Enter club or sword weapon in the search box here and I think this slim sword club has more in common with South American {Paraguay Amazon} examples than Oceanic.

Thumbs up Hamburg wonders

Do not worry there are some weapons but not many. I cannot believe members will consider the other content uninteresting. I have still to work on some native American clubs.
