The ikwa is a neolithic melee weapon that deals heavy stabbing damage.

Acquisition

It is crafted at a smithy using Stuff 50 Stuff (Metallic/Woody), and 5,000 ticks (1.39 mins) of work.

Analysis

Ikwa are strictly inferior to the gladius, which deals more damage, has more AP, and attacks just as fast, for the exact same material and research cost. While an ikwa's mid-tier damage types include Blunt and Poke (gladius only has Blunt), this is unlikely to make a meaningful difference. The only advantage of the ikwa is that tribal raiders may wield them, which industrial colonies can smelt back into steel.

If you obtain one before Smithing is unlocked, ikwa are weaker for DPS than even a knife of the same material and quality, after accounting for the melee verb system. The ikwa is ever so slightly better against armor, but most (if not all) enemies won't carry any remotely heavy armor during the time you're using an ikwa.

    Trivia

    Unlike the other melee weapons, the ikwa doesn't exist in real life with the same name; the real life equivalent of the ikwa is the iklwa.
