Very cool item, most likely from a Carpathian mountain region, possibly Ukraine or Poland , these were used by mountain people to help walking as well as the sidearm weapon. Wearing a nice strong fully functional head with lovely pierced decorations, some light usage marks to the edge, overall solid condition with heavy patina throughout. Probably a later replacement wooden shaft which makes it to be used as a walking companion, missing tip. Cool old piece from Slovenian regions, not too common. OA 25 1/2". Blade length 5 1/2". Blade edge length 5".
