We now have 4 stands available for our greenstone mere, and wooden patu.
These Maori weapon stands are made from:
Pacific Kauri (XL with Maori carving) - best stand for greenstone mere
Pine (medium and large plain stands)
Rimu (small stand with Maori carving)
They look great with the greenstone mere. The 33-34cm mere sits well on all the stands but sits best on the XL stand. The 37cm mere is too big for the small stand.
- Small Maori carved stand - approx 21cm long (8 1/4")
- Medium plain stand - approx 35cm (13 3/4") long - see last photo
- Large plain stand - approx 43cm (17")
- XL carved stand - approx 38cm x 8.2cm wide (15" x 3 1/4")
The small stand has Maori carving on the front only. The XL carved stand has carving front and back.
These stands can also be laser engraved for you, or have a gold metal engraved plate added.
Laser engraving is engraving done into the wood. It looks best on the darker stands.
Choose up to 5 words for laser engraving into the wood, or up to 10 words for an engraved metal plate, entering the words in the Options box above. ( Please note that the only reason you can return an engraved stand is in the unlikely event that it is faulty or words have been spelled incorrectly. You cannot return the stand just because you have changed your mind over the wording).
(If you would like to have paua engraving, please contact us first, as we have to get a quote from the engraver for that type of engraving).
The small carved stand can only be engraved on the back.
(Pictures include XL Stand with wahaika, and small stand with small greenstone mere).
