Default Latest Massim black palm lance club.

Just arrived L 1.35m blade width 7cm. Not sure how one would put a name to this form of stabbing club. This could be used as a bludgeon but they are generally relatively light weight and I thick more of a stabbing weapon, a short lance rather than a sword club. I show it with two other versions of similar weight. I wish I had not sold the others I had when I liquidated the bulk of my collection a few years ago. Also all three with a similar at first glance shaped weapon from Brazil/Guyana borders. The South American club is heavy with a 5cm diamond blade cross section making it quite a different weapon, crushing blows as well stabbing but much slower to swing around.
