Philippines Luzon Igorot  Kalinga Headhunter / Headhunting Axe Weapon "Gaman"

VERY RARE KALINGA HEAD AXE

c.a 1900's

Brought by an American WWII Veteran to the United States, possibly used in combat during the war with the japanese. I can send you the provenance if required - the son of the American soldier. The Igorots were known to be fearless allies to the Americans, lopping heads of the Japanese soldiers when they less expected it!

 

Blade is in excellent preserved condition

 

13 (blade tip to back) x 12 (lenght/tall) inches

The handle you see in the picture is just a sample of how could it be like. The item you are buying has no handle. Accordingly none when it was brought to the states.
