Maori warriors were fierce fighters and in the close confines of New Zealands dense bush, small hand weapons were the most practical to use.
The Kotiate with its unique violin shape has notches on the edge which were used to trap an enemy fighter weapon. They were often carved in stone or jade and were used like a knife with a stabbing movement so needed the strong wrist tether to keep them in the hand while fighting.
