The copper club seemed to be at most 0.5-1 centimeter thick. The geometry of the case made it hard to see the shape of that piece.

I was also interested in seeing the teeth on those clubs. So far as I can tell, those teeth are there to concentrate the force of the attack on the tips of the teeth, rather than to cut per se. I suspect that the shark teeth on the Kiribatian weapons are there for similar reasons.
