The Maasai of East Africa have two main weapons, the spear and the rungu (Swahili) a wooden club used to bludgeon and throw. Typically 18-24 inches long these solid clubs weigh no more then 20 ounces. Exceptionally balanced with a solid ball on one end, the rungu is a weapon that begs to be swung and in the hands of trained Kali practitioner is a pure slobber knocker!
I want to thank my girl for such a thoughtful and original gift from her travels abroad where she found a hand carved one. It will be cherished for years to come.
