TOKI MANA Maori Blade Pendant Braided Rope Tribal Surf Necklace meaning To Persevere and Have Courage During Adversity. This modern necklace features a silver New Zealand Maori Toki ceremonial chopping blade pendant suspended by hand-braided waxed cotton cord using ancient Polynesian knot tying techniques.
The Tribal Blade Necklace is a symbol of strength, authority and masculinity like those carried by Chiefs and Warriors considered to have great power. It is directly influenced by the Hei Toki-Adze design of the South Pacific Maori people and depicts a primitive blade. The Adze is an axe-like blade used on the tough timber of the island trees which requires great ability and strength to use.
The Toki Mana necklace is part of the Tribal Hollywood Surf and Beach Jewelry Collection. It closes with a toggle clasp. The pendant has a silver finish over a pewter core and an invisible hypoallergenic coating for extra protection. The cord has a fixed length of 20 inches (50cm), and the pendant measures 2 1/4 by 1 inches. The listed price includes both the pendant and braided cord.
