A Lot of African Weapons
Happened to win these three items. They all seem to have some age, and seem to be legitimate examples (although I know that there a lot of modern Sudanese arm daggers out there, so I have the most doubts about that one). The Beja knife is of the form I once read on here was used to harvest forage for camels and horses (lashed to a pole).
The one I have a question about is what is possibly a Congolese/Kuba sword. Is this the correct designation? Any speculation about the age of each of these is always welcome. These did not come from the same seller, so even though I'm presenting them together, there is no linkage to the pieces as far as date of collection (other than entering my collection in 2019!).
