The finished Solomons warclub for the Hukilau Auction...This one turned out very well, and is among my best work on war clubs. It is very sharp, as an original would be (these were made for lopping the heads off of enemies, you know.. ) There are a few different typical clubs from the area, but these spatulate/swordform clubs seem to have been the choice of the majority in the chain..One decorated as such would have belonged to an elder or a warrior caste, and would be passed down through hundreds of years. The lanyard is hand braided and aged raffia...you wouldn't want to be fighting off an invader and lose your trusty weapon! It also comes with the gin-yew-wine certificate of authenticity that companion all of my stuff! It is 21 inches long, and ready to add that air of mystery and danger to your tiki cove!! And all for a very good cause.!

Bk-
Beautiful work on the Solomons warclub, that weapon looks scary. I wouldn't want to be on the business end of that bad boy. How much does that club weigh? I wish I was going to place a bid on it. Your a very talented artist.

It probably weighs about three and one half pounds...Black walnut is very dense wood. I have some cherry as well, but man...that's a chore to carve!

That is one of the most incredible carvings I have seen. You need to film yourself carving and sell it.
Thanks and glad to see ya back so strong.

Here's a freestanding Aloha sign and a Solomon Islands lemon-blade canoe paddle I just finished...I'll post better pics later. The stuff in the background is going out on a rental to an office party Thursday...

Nice paddle BK and the Sign is Typical Super BK Top-Shelf Quality. I Love how it looks like that tiki is standing on the top right of the sign, taking total ownership.
Can't wait until the Carving Seminar so I can learn a few licks from the Basement Kahuna master...

Here's another Solomons style club I'm working on...this is a bigger, meaner one with serrations. And just look at all of those other crrrrrazy clubs Kahuna is about to work on..two Fijian Cula Cula, a Maori Taiaha, two Fijian Sali and another Solomons style spatualate club. The old war clubs are just an intrensic part of any tiki bar, period...look at any page in the Book of Tiki or most any old interior shot of any golden age tiki temple and there they are... Mystery! Danger! Adventure! Much like a puffer fish lamp, a glass float, or a tiki, no well crafted tiki bar is complete without one or two or a few Polynesian clubs.
