The Toki is the adze blade, the tool. It gives the wearer strength and courage to face, get through, do and achieve anything in their life.
This Toki also has the traditional cross-hatch binding around the top, which was one of the bindings used by the Maori to attach the Toki/adze blades to the wooden or bone handles to use as tools
This Toki is carved from pounamu we have collected from the Marsden Valley in the Paroa area just outside of Greymouth on the West Coast of the South Island.
The Toki has a waxed nylon cord so the pendant can be worn ALL the time. It is four strands that have been hand platted into a special, round, 4-plait. The cord is adjustable by pinching the special knots between your thumb and finger and pulling.
The Toki is 80mm in length and 30mm at its widest.
