Taiaha (Maori combat weapon) by savagewerx Taiaha (Maori combat weapon) by savagewerx
recently had the honour to join the N.Z mounted rifles trust and lead a parade in the N.Z/Australian A.N.Z.A.C day March (a rememberance day) without taking anything away from those who served and gave everything,there 2 things I think are a little under represented on this day, 1st is the war horse (and other animals used in the theatre of war) for which mankind owes so much.The 2nd is the Tangatawhenua  (people of the land,natives) of both N.Z and Australia,in this case we asked if we could carve 2 Taiaha and carry them (instead of firearms) as a representation of those people as well.We were given the ok and I got to ride and carry this Taiaha I managed to carve in just under 24hrs.lest we forget

I only WISH I could Carve a Taiaha on such short notice, especially with this level of detail.  Flippin' DAMN, man.

{EXCELLENT work, yo}

So, was it <24 hours apiece, or two Taiaha in under a day?

it was 2 carvers (1 being myself) for the 2 Taiaha, don't think i could do 2 by myself although i do know of a another local carver who can turn them out over 10 hrs,but thats all he carves, we both worked together and also rode together carrying them
