This is a fantastic shamanic phurba. It is quite old indeed and it's hard wood  has developed a lustrous smooth patina from years of ritual use.  The phurba deities face is rendered in a style reminiscent of masks from Nepal's mid-west and western middle hills area.  Intertwined Nagas embellish two sides of the tripartite blade and the back side of the blade has important shamanic symbols such as the trisul (trident) and dhanu or bow - a weapon of ritual subjugation.
