This is an authentic Hawaiian KOA knife with a Blue Marlin Bill for the blade. This beautiful piece of art measures 2.5 feet long with the bill over 2 feet. The handle is hand carved from rare 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.
This distinctive piece of polynesian art would be a great addition to a hawaiiana collection. Also perfect as tropical decor for an office or a hawaiian style home. A great gift with MUCH ALOHA!
