The Kpinga was a multi-bladed throwing knife of Central Africa. It was the long-range weapon of the Zande Warrior.


The Kpinga had three projecting blades and a small, plant fiber handle. The one shown was 21 inches long and weighed 3.5 pounds. Like its distant cousin, the shuriken, it could be thrown overhead at an opponent, or sideways to take out an opponent's legs. Even the handle could do a lot of damage if it hit.


El Kpinga fue lanzado contra los opositores, convirtiéndolo en uno de los pocos cuchillos lanzadores africanos funcionales con considerable evidencia documental de su uso en la batalla. La posición de las cuchillas aumentó la probabilidad de implantar una víctima cuando el arma hizo impacto . :v

The Kpinga was also associated with the masculine power of the Zande warrior and were part of the marriage price paid by a Zande man to the family of his prospective wife.
