Maripi - Knife: handmade jade toki carved by Brian Hill

A lovely curved toki, carved from a piece of dark green pounamu, or New Zealand jade. Take a moment to watch the short video to see the variation in the jade and the curved form.

This piece is bound with a dark chocolate brown hand-plaited cord.

As an adornment, the Toki, or Adze, is said to bring courage and strength in times of adversity. It is a symbol of courage and strength in times of adversity and is often worn by Māori elders as a symbol of power, wisdom and authority.

Māori believe that carvings carry the spirit of those who wear them, becoming an important family Taonga (treasure) passed on to future generations of the family as an heirloom.
