This is an authentic Hawaiian KOA dagger with a built in spear and 18 intimidating Shark teeth. It is also known as "pahoa i a me lei-o-mano". This beautiful piece of art measures 21" long with a total of 18 authentic tiger shark teeth.
It is hand carved from rare Curly Koa wood and has woven loops of fibers also called "olonai", a Hawaiian shrub, the bark of which is valued as a source of strong, durable fiber. The spear can either be hung or mounted. From the pictures one can appreciate the attention to details and the smooth patina of the wood.
It is a distinctive piece of art and would be a great addition to a Hawaiiana collection. Also perfect as tropical decor for your office or for a Hawaiian style decorating theme.
A great gift with MUCH ALOHA!
