BK, love your work. I also like your take on Polynesian weapons making for danger and mystery in the bar.

Here is a finished Solomon Islands style serrated club. The Samoans had similar cubs in their traditions, but much heavier. Just for kicks I notched this one three times! Clubs were often notched to denote kills, and forms with many kills became the most prolifically produced. In the Fijian tradition, clubs with many kills were often given a name and took on a mythic mana, or soul, and were revered as sacred objects and passed down through many generations. This is a large club, with over 40 serrations, 51 inches long. Details on this club can be seen on Tiki Carving Methodology thread..Cat shown for size comparison

Not something to be on the receiving end of. The detail on these babies are something else, BK. Will oceanic weapons be on the Coon-Tiki agenda?

Such fine and intricate carving. Such beautiful weapons. You're absolutely right, they do add an air of danger and mystery to a tiki room. Very nice job!

Here is a Fijian Cula Cula I just finished. This club measures 34 inches and is all hand chip and palm chisel. The Cula Cula was a status weapon, usually carried by chiefs or warrior caste in ancient Fiji. It's specific purpose was attacking the neck and midsection of an opponent. This form is hard to carve due to the geometry involved (this is one of the more wierd Fijian weapons!)in shaping the edges and cut-outs and the intricacy of hand-decorating. A better shot tomorrow..Next up: a Maori Taiaha...
