Iron and wood

This is a weapon made of iron. It is either single edged or double edged. It has a rounded edge which is not sharp due to rusting. The hilt and the cover are made of wood. The hilt has a mold or curve which helps in the grasp. It was used in warfare activities but presently used while performing the traditional dances or other ritualistic practices by the Garo community.
