The Makraka is a sickle-shaped knife of Central Africa. It was the Close-Range weapon of the Zande Warrior. The Makraka had a sickle-shaped blade that widens near the tip, with the cutting edge on the concave side of the blade. The handle is wooden covered in hide to increase the grip. The Makraka was often used in executions, as demonstrated on the show. It could also serve as a secondary weapon in combat.
