The short weapons of the Māori were most commonly used to cut, to stab, to batter and to bruise enemy opponents with the intent of causing serious injury and or death. Most were never thrown as the Māori of old believed that there was not much honour in killing a person from afar, they far preferred to kill their enemy or be killed by their enemy face to face. Another reason is that most weapons represent ancestors, gods or deities and common sense tells us that you would be reluctant to throw those away. Now days they are mostly used for ceremonial purposes, but don't be fooled by their beauty, in the hands of an expert a well crafted weapon is still as lethal as it was those many years ago.

Out of these three the top one would probably do the most damage 💯, the middle one would be more practical if it was made from stone (pounamu or õnewa), and the bottom one just looks pretty lol, well it has teeth on it now but still Wahaika for the win haha. 👊 📷🏠😂

Māripi are elaborately carved cutting tools/weapons made from wood and shark's teeth lashed into place by flax fibre (no lashed teeth on this Māripi yet as I haven't found the time to catch a shark these holidays lol). They were used to cut flesh, such as whale, dog or shark, and for other utilitarian tasks. There are, however, some accounts that state that they were also used in battle.

Success is Failure turned inside out. AHIPARA is where i turned my life inside out.

Remembering the brave today but still serving up tasty as kiwi kai from 12 noon #fushshorebro #anzacday #remember #brave #maumahara #hokowhitu #tūmatauenga #lunch #dinner

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
