With its many blades and dramatic form, this impressive throwing knife would have been a status symbol and a form of currency among the Ngombe peoples of what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Demonstrating the skill of the blacksmith who crafted it, the knife features razor-thin blades forged into a complex and remarkably expressive arrangement. We’re struck by the vitality of the wrought metal workmanship and the commanding presence of its emblematic silhouette.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
