PLEASE NOTE: As this is a natural product, no 2 will ever be the same, the colour of Wood, Greenstone and Feathers may be different to what is shown in the photo.

A Taiaha is a hand weapon usually made from hard wood, or sometimes whale bone, they have one end carved in the shape of an upoko (head) with a face on each side. The eyes of the two faces see all around, reflecting the alertness of the Taiaha exponent. An arero (tongue) protruding from the upoko forms one end of the weapon. The upoko is adorned with a tauri (collar) of feathers and/or dog hair, the tassels of which form the awe. Below this, the tinana (body) provides the grip. The other end of the Taiaha has a flat smooth blade, or rau, usually about five to seven centimetres wide, which is the main striking blade.
