These are all made of kauila, a native hardwood, preferred for weapons making because of its density and strength. This wood will not float in water. They could all fit into the category of newa (war cudge, club) but two of them are also used as pahoa (daggers).
L to R:
1. Found on the island of Kaua'i; unique design; original in Kaua'i Museum.
2. This reportedly was seen on the island of Maui; the bottom of the handle has shark's teeth to add to the effectiveness of the weapon.
3. Eye gouge, the original name is lost; also used for clubbing, trapping and breaking of both weapons and bones.
4. Imbedded with human teeth to further imbue the weapon with the mana of the warriors that they came from.
