Asmat Stone Knife, West Papua – 19-8


Asmat Stone Knife, West Papua. It is said these little knives are used for ritual cutting during mourning rites. The blade shows considerable age and use. The handle is probably a later version as that part wears out. It is 6 inches long and the stone is 1.5 inches wide. Hafted with bush twine wrapped over banana leaves.
