Zulu Spear
This spear is solid and well constructed. Better than I expected for the price. Will order another one!

Very nice looking spear for starter.  I gave it an ageing process so it would look closer to a antique spear that Zulu tribesman may have created.

They appear to be constructed with a high degree of craftsmanship.  My two issues are:
1. It was not as sharp as I had come to expect from Atlanta Cutlery, however in their defense, I didn't order sharpening.
2. I have not tested the working use as a bona fide tool, but as I stated before it is high quality, I trust I'll not be disappointed.
Besides they look very formidable up on the wall.  Great work.

This spear far exceeded my expectations. I've wanted a Zulu spear for my collection, but what I had seen available from other companies were not up to what I wanted. This spear did...... MBL, Florida

Bought this Iklwa for the same reason the Zulus had them in the first place.  To defend my home.

I have had one since they were first offered, and it's an excellent hunting spear. With the way things are going in this world, having a second one seemed like a good move. It's an excellent and formidable close quarter weapon.
