    They are also known as a "Hunga Munga" You would be better off to find a imported copy.
    Atlanta Cutlery used to carry them.

    "Hunga Munga"? I say, "hubba hubba!"





    Looks like an absolute bear to forge.

    Maybe it was meant to be cast, not forged....

    They are a traditional African design. I first saw them in Stone's Glossary back when I was a teenager --
    don't know how old the ones in his collection were but clearly long before any of the current knife crazes
    or movies.

    Given that, I'm pretty sure they were village blacksmith work. They certainly weren't finely finished.

    That knife?? thing?? looks like it would do just as much damage to the holder as it would to anything or one else

    Also........
    How heavy do you reckon that hammer is that the girl is holding? Strong girl..........
