Nice knives. All are from Cameroon or Nigeria and are generally considered Hausa. Probably all twentieth century.

I would hesitate to be so exact. I would say between 1920s and 1960s is likely.

Thank you It is always difficult with such weapons to estimate age, I believe that they are minimum 50-60 years old and of course would prefer if they could be dated from 1920- 30 '.
