Very interesting Luc. Is this a hole in the item? What size is it? Can you post pictures that give more idea of the structure. Is this a curreny blade? or a heavier parade item? Are you going to clean it? Lots of ????? I really the serrated sections.

Hi Luc, except for the very nice decorations the throwing knife is very similar to a Lakka throwing knife. Possibly a distintive sign of the Ga_anda are the three lines along the stem that I noted only in Ga_anda knives. I enclose the decoration of one of my Ga_anda knife. Nice knife, compliment
