Some of these knives looks not very well made may be because some people says that were made for tourists at the beginning of last century. This one in particular has an hand made handle and an hammered blade. It has also a series of decorations made of surelevated ridges. I enclose the figures reported in Gousseau (1997). The closer knives are from Konda-Kundu or Sengele-Ngombč. The handle is however quite typical of the Konda.
