Toki / Adze

Toki / Adze

All Maori design has an element of magic that can increase the life spirit of the object or person it adorns. So when the toki was lashed to an expertly carved shaft, the life spirit, the mana of the toki, increased. This power is why the chief, the most powerful tribesmen, was the only one allowed to wield it. Today when worn around the neck, the toki is said to represent strength because of this distant association with the tribal chief and increased life force of the toki poutangata.

The time-consuming process of

Carving pounamu toki

Carving toki by hand is a labour of love, that requires several steps. Firstly the stone is slabbed and graded. Hereafter every step is done meticulously by hand; straight lines are drawn as close as possible to ensure no stone is wasted, before being cut individually. Then the hard work by hand begins, sanding and shaping the stone before it's skilfully bound. The carver will treat each piece with reverence and respect, taking care that every one is finished to the highest standard.
