Here is the project Ive been working on for the last week or so. It's been cold out so I was able to do a lot of this indoors in front of the fireplace.

It is a Maori knife from New Zealand . At least my interpretation. Every time I carve something I wonder in awe about the ability of the original craftsmen that made these terrific pieces of art with very primitive tools.









Hope you enjoy. This was a fun one.

JP

JohnnyP,

Yep, that's a keeper. The teeth look great on there. Maybe the tigers will go on the next one? That's wikkid. I like the black background shot. You fooled me for a minute - I thought that was a shot from a book! Very nice job. Now don't go getting in trouble with all those weapons now...play nice!

Thanks guys,

I did have the Tiger Shark teeth all laid out but they didn't want to sit right, so instead of fighting it I went with the flow. I ordered the book Kaha Ki'i recomended about Hawai'i and the weapons, so I should have some good examples to pick from the use the Tiger Shark teeth.

dude...you're insane. I see pictures of carvings like that in books and I say "that's really cool, but a little over my head". Not over yours, though. I saw that last picture and, like gman, I first thought it was from the book. Amazing job

Polynesiac,
This was over my head. The pictures make it look better than real life. The dark stain hides some of the flaws. I learned a lot though. The first thing I learned is not to use oak for something like this.

JohhnyP!
Wow brah! Beautiful Maripi!!! Youre kickin ass cuz! You sure you dont wnat to sell da buggah's you carve? Very nice nice!! yeah bruddah, as soon as you get the Peter Buck book on War & weapons, youre gonna really be smokin' on da kine!!! The attachement of the teeth to the kahiko weapons is the hardest part about making weaponry and your work shows how much time & effort you put into your work!

Again, very beautiful!!! Cant wait to see what you come up with next!!!

Malama Pono!!

JP, this is really an incredible carving. When you get to the carving stage where you are doing the peirce carvings like this, going all the way through the wood multiple times, you enter another whole knew world. The degree of difficulty is treemendous and you just did it like it was "Just" another carving. I know what you mean about feeling what it was like for those former, ancient carvers with their primitive tools and the trouble they had. We have all kinds of power tools and it is Still difficult.
Very Well Done.
