Patiti (hatchet) with harpoon head (hatchet; unknown carver; 1830-1850; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; OL001037)
Note: This formidable weapon has been created by fixing the head of a whaling harpoon to a carved wooden handle. The double-fluke harpoon head is made from forged iron and would normally have been fastened to a hardwood shaft between about 1 to 2 metres in length. The double-fluke design dates to before the 13th century. This one is consistent with two-fluke designs used in New Zealand and abroad in the mid-19th century and may be of American manufacture as British harpoon heads of the period were commonly date stamped with the manufacturer's name and place of manufacture.
