Large Carved Wahaika

Kauri (Agathis macrophylla) Wahaika comes with a base.

Belonging to the Meremere or short combat weapons group. Waha-ika means the mouth of the fish. If you look at the shape of the weapon it looks like the shape of a whales lower jaw bone. Was used where quick in-fighting action required thrusting jabs. Wahaika has two vital components. The recess used for piercing the stomach, and the figurine (guardian) to protect the user should he be attacked from behind.
