Pure kakariki toki

The Toki was one of the most important tools for Māori and were used for any number of everyday jobs such as cutting down trees, carving out waka, digging ground, Moa hunting and food preparations. Because the toki had to be strong to endure the cutting and scraping motions of its use it became a symbol of strength(particularly in times of adversity), courage and fortitude. It was also worn by elders as a symbol of power, wisdom and authority.

This is a lovely classic toki with gorgeous colour and patterns. Have a flick through the photos, that golden edge is a bit lovely eh?    A good size for your rangatahi or an adult alike. This is a taonga that will journey through life with you.
