GUEST: It belonged to my husband's father, and he got it from overseas. We're not really sure where.
APPRAISER: It's from Fiji. And when this was made, these people were cannibals. And it was probably made before 1830. They call these pineapple clubs because of all these spikes. This spike is made to penetrate a person's skull and kill them. I would insure it for $4,000 to $6,000.
