I acquired this decidedly old Kora at the weekend. I wasn't sure if I should post it on this forum, but Highlander thought it'd be a good idea, so it's his fault it's here!

Wow looks great Dave , love the eye and the small curve at the end of the blade , what are the specs on it ??
Can you get a smaller pict so we can see the profile of the blade ,
Id say 19th century
See what the other guys think .

Nice tip on the 33% thing, never thought of that, 'doh!'
Overall length is; 26 1/2", blade along the spine is 21", the end of the blade is 4" across and it weighs in at 30oz
