The Hei Toki Blade is a culturally significant symbol within the Māori culture, representing courage and strength, particularly in times of difficulty. These blades were carved to be used as chisel tools for the practice of Whakairo (traditional wood carving), to craft Marae (meeting houses) and Waka (canoes). Hei Toki pendants were also worn by Māori elders to symbolise power, wisdom and authority.

Pounamu: Approx 64mm x 26mm
Traditionally lashed with black cord
