Default Old knife from period of the Anglo-Zulu Wars

This knife was brought back to England in the late 1880s and has been in the family since that time. I don't know the name of the man or the family. The knife is heavily patinated but appears to have survived well. Given the timing of the individual's return to England, shortly after the period of the Anglo-Zulu Wars, the knife is probably from that general era. Whether it came from the conflict is lost to time.

It is uncommon in my experience to find old African knives with a reasonably well defined date. OAL = 42 cm (~16.5 in.)
