Distinctly African made example of considerable age. 7" d.e. blade with crude double fullers and light tool finish, shown some spotty black staining and pitting toward the tip. One piece wood grip with flared pommel and base. The front set with trade tacks. Dark glossy patina. This example was probably owned by an Arab engaged in the slave trade. The greatest market for slaves coming out of East Africa was the Arab countries and many Arabs were engaged in the trade in Africa.
