Characteristic form, Fischer #252. 19 ¼” spatulate blade with slightly depressed medial defined by a band of punches. Leather covered hide with Conical skull crusher pommel and iron wire cage medial. Excellent old example from the Baptist Missionary Society Collection. Note that Fischer describes these as “uniquely functional” which distinguishes them from the more fanciful form carried by their neighbors. The Yaka were ferocious warriors. They were slavers and likewise preyed on by their neighbors.
