WOOD MASTERS Wahaika Carved 764 (39cm)

Wood Masters | 21st Keys | Teko | Walking Sticks | Simply NZ | NZ The Gift

This Wahaika has carving on the handle and guardian, both with Paua eyes. Hand carved here in New Zealand using traditional techniques. Made from Kauri and Paua Shell. Waha-ika means the mouth of the fish. If you look at the shape of the weapon it looks like the shape of a whales' lower jaw bone. Many waha-ika have a small figure carved on the side. This figure would be a guardian to the owner and would often be a venerated ancestor. Can be engraved for gifting.

Size: 39 cm x 12 cm x 2.5 cm 
Hand Made in New Zealand
