Default old plain faced maori taiaha for discussion please

This maori taiaha which I have just acquired has a plain face , I have read articles that they were an unfinished project or the carver had been killed before finishing the work ,the point I have is that this taiaha looks like its been very well handled and very well used as it shows such good patination and wear ,and so therefore was carved as a plain face and used like this ?
also this taiaha has several very small holes down one side and all the holes in the sames direction ,straight out the side ,could these of been used for feathers maybe ?
