Sub-Saharan Sweetheart Kpinga


Everyone loves the sleek, hip look of a throwing knife, but there’s nothing like the embarrassment you feel when it hits your foe handle-first!  Talk about a fashion don’t!  But don’t worry – thanks to the Zande people of Sudan, you can be fashion-forward and have near 100% accurate aim!  The Kpinga throwing knife is designed to rip into your target’s flesh no matter how it hits.  It’s light enough to throw, but heavy enough to hit with a bang!  Offset this bodacious blade with a makraka (sickle) at your belt, a rattan shield, and a lusty cry of “Niam-niam!”*  Show ’em that you’re a babe who means business!

*This is a Zande word and also essentially an onomatopoeia meant to imitate the sound of chewing, as in “I’m going to eat you after I kill you.”  A sensible lady lets nothing go to waste!
