This replica Maori Axe ( Toki Kaka Poto, also called a Patiti in its smaller form) features a New Zealand greenstone axe head and carved timber (pine) shaft. As per tradition, paua shell pieces are used to decorate the carving. The axe sits on a display stand.
The axe was a valuable Maori tool, used to fell trees, clear vegetation, prepare tree trunks for carving into waka (canoes), and general carving.
This axe is sold in two sizes - Small and Large, with the large axe having more surface carving.

Large: length approx 44.5cm (17 1/2"), on a stand 53.4cm (21") long
The Maori Axe makes an excellent addition to a weapons or Maori collection, and a great presentation piece too. Display on your desk, table or mantlepiece.
