Toki Kaha

The ‘Toki Kaha’, which translates to ‘Adze of Strength’ in Māori, is not just a name; it is a statement of resilience and power. This hapopo pounamu toki pendant is a testament to the enduring strength that the toki symbolizes in Māori culture and the robust beauty of the greenstone from which it is carved.

Pounamu is much more than mere stone; it is a sacred treasure within Māori tradition. It carries with it a sense of heritage and strength that is both ancient and profoundly relevant today. The Toki Kaha, crafted from this noble stone, embodies these qualities and serves as a wearable reminder of the fortitude that lies within each of us.

Traditionally, the toki was a tool used by Māori ancestors to carve their history into wood among other things. In its modern form as a pendant, the Toki Kaha represents the wearer’s ability to craft their own path in life with strength and determination. The toki’s form is an ode to the artisan’s skill and the earth’s creative force.

This particular Toki Kaha is shaped from hapopo pounamu, known for its intricate deep green and black patterns, reminiscent of the lush forests and rugged landscapes of Aotearoa. Each stripe tells a story, each shade of green holds a mystery, and every curve reflects the might of the land.

Wearing the Toki Kaha is a proclamation of one’s personal strength and connection to the land. It is a badge of honor and a source of inspiration. This toki is not only an accessory but also a companion for life, encouraging resilience in the face of adversity. Embrace the power of the Toki Kaha, carry a piece of New Zealand’s soul, and let it remind you of the strength that resides within you.
