KUBA / MONGO, KNIVES, DRC

The distinctive two-part hilt is characteristic of Mongo knives.

Knives, axes, currency blades and spears, all made of forged iron, attest to the skills in metal of the Kuba/ Mongo and related peoples of central Africa. Most exhibit an inventive variety of form and workmanship far beyond what was functionally necessary. Specialists in the field will identify these pieces much more specifically.
