Omwele Gwoshipila  (Knife with Decorated Sheath)

Knife used as a ceremonial knife. This knife was collected in 1949 by Mrs S.J Bowker in 1949. (NMN, E359)

Question

Were these special knives found in every Ovambo Kingdom? If so, did they have the same name? Let the Museum of Namibian Fashion know if you have seen one or heard a story about one.
