This stunning Large Lashed Marsden Toki with an engraved blade edge is made from top quality New Zealand Marsden Greenstone & is lashed with a fully adjustable black/natural waxed cord.

This Toki (Adze) was an important Maori implement.  In bone or stone, it was traditionally worn by Maori elders, as it represented power, wisdom, authority, strength, control, determination and focus.

Carved from Marsden Flower Pounamu this type of stone comes from an area outside Greymouth on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island.
It also comes in a type called ‘flower jade’ – this is generally the part of the stone closest to the outside that is showing the greatest degree of inclusion and oxidation. This results in gorgeous colors – golds, reddish browns and a wide array of greens.
