VARIOUS THROWING KNIVES, Central Africa

These cut-metal objects are inspired by the designs of forged iron throwing knives. While originating from the African continent, they are likely not created by the tribes who invented the designs. The tribal attributions indicate the origin of the design, not the object.

Despite their appearance, the knives in this collection show no evidence of age or use and were probably made to be sold.
