Default Small club ? Throwing stick ? Chief's Regalia ?

Hi,
interesting small club ....hard and heavy for its size. Attached a label ....Rhodesia seems about right... judging by the wood. Wire work, typical for the area, is 'coated' (paint ?) copper.
Curious tapered hole in the handle....either a pommel / butt piece was attached there ....or perhaps a staff ?.

I appreciate that the label could be wrong, but it has been there for some time ( judging from the mark left by the string ) Has some age overall and could easily see this as mid 20th C (2nd world war era ? )

All comments gratefully received

Regards David
