This is a one of a kind handcrafted curly Hawaiian Koa "Knuckle Duster" weapon. It is in the style of "Lei O Mano," a melee weapon, commonly used as a slashing weapon. A melee weapon is any weapon that does not involve a projectile, meaning in normal use it is simultaneously in contact with the user and the target; melee weapons were used by "Koa" warriors for their maneuverable once in close combat. This piece is made with real shark teeth, responsibly harvest curly Koa wood and rooster feathers.
The upper end is highly figured with wood grain curls that extend the length of the piece.
- Measures approx. 12" long X 5" wide X 1" high
This unique piece was painstakingly made by hand by artist Reagan Billings.
