This very mean looking "brain buster" comes with a wicked steel stabbing spear at the opposite end. I've no idea on the origins of this one but certainly it appears to have quite some age to it and does not look like a recent one. I would think African rather than Pacific but then again could also be a Fijian Ula. Probably early 1900's. The weapon is 25 1/2" in length and the bindings look to have been recently "treated"in order to preserve them.
