Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures



Authentic headhunting swords like this were popular in the mid- to late- 1800s . . . even up to the mid-1900s (in certain locations).


The primitive weapon collector I purchased it from said it had a sterling silver foundation with copper inlay and brass handle . . .  and  – as shown – a tuft of hair.


Did I mention it was a letter opener suitable for lopping off the top of any envelope?


Also, did I mention that it is really cool?  Look at the detail!


Only suitable for a very special and Serious Collector.  Stands not included.
