Traditionally in Maori culture, Pounamu was used to create tools and chisels for carving. The Adze (Toki) was used for building and decorating Waka (canoes) and Whare (meeting house). Carved Toki range from very plain tools through to magnificent works of art. they were skilfully shaped from all kinds of Pounamu, but the most prized was the hard Pounamu that could keep a sharp cutting edge comparable with metal. Each Toki started as a slab of Pounamu that was sliced shaped and sharpened under the pressure of the human hand, water and sandstone. 

The spiral korus symbolize eternity, loyalty, faith, friendship or the love between two people.
