Zulu war club from Thukela, South Africa. This type of weapon is usually referred to as a "knobkerrie", but that nomenclature was imposed by the Dutch south Afrikaans and is not a native term. Impressively heavy and solid club with a long shaft, thick head and braided brass and copper wire decorations.
