KUBA STYLE KNIFE 59, DRC

While originating from the African continent, this knife is likely not created by the tribe who invented the design. The tribal attribution indicates the origin of the design, not the object.

This knife is less refined than most. The brass is decorative, but never functioned as a knife. There is a crack on the side that shows in both details.
