Toki, means 'Adze' in the Maori language.
A 'Toki' is an 'Adze' used for carving all sizes of wood. The small tips are for finishing work and of course the very big Adze are to hollow out Canoes in all the Seafaring Societies of Polynesia.
The 'Adze'(usually lashed to a strong piece of carved wood) was used in ancient times and even today throughout the North and South Pacific Islands as a tool for forming the Ocean Voyaging Canoes as well as everyday fishing Canoes and Carvings!
