Lei-o-mano Puka - Shark tooth weapon - The Weapons of Lua - 'Ôlohe Solomon Kaihewalu

This weapon is designed to cut and spear your attacker. This is a light weight weapon and normally is carried by an older warrior or chief. Most elderly warriors carry this light weapon to clean up and take care of all those fallen opponents (warriors) that went down due to being wounded. The elderly warrior's job is to keep moving, taking the wounded to safety. The light weight of this weapon kept the elderly warrior from becoming overly fatigued.
