The kotiate was a popular Maori weapon, used for man-to-man combat and distinctively having a carved notch on either side of the blade. They were usually made from whalebone but sometimes from native hardwoods. Whalebone kotiate were usually only carved on the butt of the handle, Wooden kotiate were also carved on the blade. Kotiate all had a cord so the warrior could wrap that cord around their hand, to prevent it being lost during battle. via Somethangsz Originalz FB
