Hawaiian Style Curly Spalted Koa Fishhook
1 1/2 in. x 2 5/8 in. with 21
This is one of a double handful of hooks I made of various materials.
one was also an award winner, first place for carving. It is my interpretation of the Polynesian/Hawaiian/New Zealand style
of hook carving. The wood is very spalted and highly figured. The lashing was done by a Local in Hawaii. The toggle is
a simple plastic bead.
Finished with cyanoacrylate (super glue) and kukui nut oil.
