Thanks, friends...Sebastian, this Taiaha is carved in old growth black walnut. I don't give away all of my secrets, but this thread http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=17450&forum=7&start=15&hilite=upoko shows a fair gambit of how I craft a Taiaha.

This was a nice one. The feathers really make the exceptional carving stand out. Is this the one you had started at Coon Tiki II?

These are the new Gecko'z South Sea Arts/Basement Kahuna resincasts. I think he did a fine job on these...heavy and very detailed. I put instructions on Tiki Marketplace on how to order. 11.60 each postpaid. The originals ran from 125-180.00, so these are an alternative everyone can live with. Aloha!

One of my finest bone carvings to date...48 openwork points and 9 inlays..a union of land and sea; a tree lizard spirit surrounded by four joined Manaia. 4 x 2 inches.

Dear Kahuna,
Thanks a lot for the Taiaha Link, great work and a great warrior in that picture huh?
As for your bone carving, Congratulations, more than happy to see your new work. I hope to learn a lot from your work, thanks for the photos.

Thanks, all. No, Johnny, can't seem to afford to keep anything I carve anymore..been that way for a while, so it's for sale. A little more costly than my usual bone pieces. I have it over on Marketplace. Gets kind of different carving for a living. Have to do one-off stuff like this ever-so-often to keep my passion high.
