Doing some clubs of late just to stay in practice while finishing older client orders. Here are two; the first is a Maori Taiaha, my sixth to date, and something that I truly love to make.. 57 inches. A true weapon, balanced and fire hardened and polished from top to bottom. In very old black walnut. The second weapon with the bladed top is called a Tewhatewha. This was a club carried by chiefs and denoted marshal authority. The feathers had two purposes, a signal much like a flag that could be seen from a distance, as well as a distraction to an opponent. The business end of the top of the club is acthually the straight back edge. The blade serves only as a weight to bring the backswing down harder. The sharpened end could be used to then dispatch the opponent. The single carving at the end of the weapon is typical for these. This one is in nicely figured antique cherry.

Good to see you back my friend, and in perfect form.

The new pieces are a work of beauty, and I'm sure quite functional.

DAMN! Them is some FINE pieces there BK. The Finest!
I do believe you make these things, so you can use them on people.
Thanks for the putting in the facts along with it too. This kind of knowledge is SOOO obscure, and you've got-it-downnnnn!
Aloha

Thanks everyone...carving these things is learning them. Seeing them in pictures and then holding it in your hand is transformative. Mahalo for all of the -very- kind words!
