I will also say that given it's form it looks more like a fighting staff than simply something to aid in walking or for ceremony.

But i have no knowledge of fighting staffs from the South Seas, or for that matter, any where else, so it hard to say how to categorize it. Still a seriously nice and collectable bit of carving.
Thank you David ... I wasnt sure which category to put it in I must admit. Though it does have some weight to it and the fact that it is pointed made me consider that it could be a weapon .
