"Zulu" Short Spear

I don't know much about this piece, except that it's some sort of minor antique that I picked up at a convention. The wire-wrap holding the head on is relatively new compared to the rest. I was told it was "Zulu", but it may only be inspired by Zulu spears, or from a different region. I just don't know. But it was cheap and cool, so here it is. :)

Update: I've been told that it is called an "assegaai" and is a design that has been used in man-to-man fights as well as against lions.
