African Tusk Tool??

Found this old Tusk tool a while ago? I am assuming it is African in origin and it shows a lot of age and use. It seems to be carved to be held in the left hand with the point forward. It is rather heavy and is about 21" long.

I have been looking on the net for any similar items but have come up short.

Does anyone have an idea of where it is from and what it was used for?

Best Regards

It is a Ivory Kuba Pestle from the D.R. of Congo. Found several online.
