DEER STALKER - a subtle, sage green coloured jade toki.

A large, traditional toki carved from New Zealand Kokopu Jade. We have named this piece DEER STALKER. The colours in the stone speak to camouflage, gentle movement and the shift of light between the bush edge and clearings.

We have bound this with a traditional lashing in Khaki Green. The neck cord is a hand plaited Khaki and Manuka Green colour which is length adjustable.

DEER STALKER - a spectacular piece that will accompany you for a lifetime!

A little about the toki...

The toki, or adze, is a symbol of strength. Traditionally, the adze was a key survival tool, so the owner of a good one was believed to be strong and powerful. It is a symbol of authority.

This shape is derived from a chisel tool used by the Māori people of Aotearoa (New Zealand) to carve their great canoes and carved detailing on their meeting houses. It was an essential tool in their daily lives, and a good quality jade adze was a prized possession.

Shipping is included in the price.

We will include our 'Kia Ora' card, which explains the meaning behind the Toki design.
