This rare & highly collectible ceremonial weapon was made by these Micronesian people who had no ready source of metals. The shark teeth are uniformly shaped and drilled with uniform sized holes. They are then threaded together with a coconut fiber called TeKoro & strung onto a coconut wood shaft. The woven decorations are made of human hair. Most of these swords were destroyed by European invaders.
Condition is very good. There are some sheared teeth. Please study photos.
