With the leather covering it would be from the West Africa/Sahel region.

From the images it looks quite crudely made, so its possible its a souvenir item made for sale, but this is often difficult to determine.

Regards.

Colin, thanks for the answer. I really appreciate it.
This is probably not the first thing I should buy but got it from a friend and I think it was nice of him. Probably a tourist thing.

I quite like it, looks pretty deadly to me. It has the appearance of a crudely made "Swagger Stick" but I having no idea of its dimensions I don't really know just my guess.

Hi,
I brought nearly the same years ago from Ethiopia. Typical staff "used" by various guards (zabaňa).
Best,

Martin
