Mere Club Replica 10"

$ 89.00


A carved traditional wooden Mere/Patu. Maori warriors were fierce fighters and in the close confines of New Zealand's dense bush, small hand clubs were the most practical to use. The common characteristic of the mere/patu is a flat, broad blade with a rounded end made sharp enough to cause major damage.

The Mere was the hand-to-hand fighting club of choice for the Maori Warriors. As a general rule the Rangatira (Chief) carried the mere/patu or short club.
