This toki is made from top quality New Zealand Greenstone/Pounamu which is green/grey in colour. The front is pyramid shaped and the back is flat. It is lashed with brown waxed cord.
The 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.
