The Toki, or adze, was designed as a practical instrument, most widely incorporated in axes and a ceremonial symbol made solely for chiefs and warriors. It is used to express their supremacy and indicate their social hierarchy.
Nowadays, Toki is carried as a symbol of power. However, Toki Pounamu are typically given to symbolize perseverance, dedication, bravery,and success,which honors the link between the past and the present.
