I do not think it is Polynesian. Papuan or Solomon Islands and there abouts would be the best bet. Looks like a working axe for many types of work.

Hello,

any comments ?
Papuan / Oceanian tribes specialists ?

The ''classical'' stone ''tool'' papuan axes I found have often this shape,

has someone the same as mine ?

Kind regards
