The Toki is a symbol of strength, courage and bravery. In the Māori heritage from New Zealand, the Toki adze is a symbol deeply connected with the craft of woodworking. This distinct tool, featuring a curved blade was used in shaping canoes/waka, homes and sacred places. Fashioned from durable materials such as pounamu greenstone, these adzes transcended mere utility to become cultural heirlooms passed down through generations. The creation of a Toki adze blended skill and artistry, with each contour and edge symbolizing a masterpiece. In modern times, these taonga stand as guardians of tradition, preserving ancient wisdom through Māori rituals, customs and traditions.
