Kusu Bangu Bangu Knife, 19th C

About 60,000 Kusu live in the Southeastern Congo (Zaire) along the left bank of the Lualaba River. Formerly a hunting society, in recent years they have become more sedentary and have turned to agriculture and fishing. They tend to live in small villages isolated from each other. This knife features a multi-fullered 12" blade, broadening in the center and drawn out to a long sharp point; the edge sharpened over its entire length and showing hand forging and lamination. Short waisted one-piece wood grip. Overall length 15 1/4".
