Mere pounamu (greenstone short bladed weapon) (mere pounamu; Unknown; 1500; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; registration number: ME005039)
Note: This mere pounamu (greenstone short-bladed weapon) has become disassociated from its history, so unfortunately little is known about it. It is, however, a fine example, with five grooves on the handle and a suspension hole where a fibre or animal hide thong once secured it to the wrist of the wearer.
