Traditionally, Toki was used by Māori to cut and work timber for meeting houses and carvings. Because of the determination, control and strength required to skillfully use the Toki, it became a symbol of ability, power and authority. Ceremonial Toki were traditionally worn by Māori elders and Chiefs to signify leadership qualities. 

May the Toki bring the wearer strength, courage and inspiration on their journey in life
