Default African whats it?

Hi All,

Got this item in a job lot.

Looking at pictures before i saw item in hand I taught it was a congolese short sword but the blade is wafer thin 2 mm or so and quiet flexible and springy.


overall length of 60cm
handle 24cm long and 11 cm at widest
blade 36 cm tapering from 11 to 5 cm

no visible means of securing blade into handle and decoration is v crude

Mods. if this proves to be ethnographic miscellania my apologies and please move thread.

Might be an egg flipper

Regards and thanks in advance to all,

Ken
