Knives in the Wihongi Signature series from Browning® are designed in collaboration with Jared Wihongi, one of the world's foremost law enforcement edged weapons instructors and are based on images from his Maori heritage. The Maori peoples were once a Spartan-like society, and developed over centuries of inter-tribal warfare in what is now New Zealand. The spirit of the Maori warrior is expressed in the ritual Haka, a war dance that's intended, among other things, to challenge and intimidate an enemy. Other conspicuous Maori symbols are stylized tattoos and carvings. These decorations are often added to their weapons to represent a warrior ancestor. When you carry the weapon into battle, you carry their strength and courage with you. The Maori designs on the Wihongi Signature line of blades are intended to honor the warrior spirit of these peoples.

You will find the same hollow ground 3-3⁄4" deep-draft Reverse Tanto blade of 7Cr17MoV stainless at 56-57 Rc. with a Maori Warrior Tribal tattoo etch. The handle again is black G-10 with machined checkering, sculpted finger grooves for improved grip in extreme conditions, and a lanyard hole. The folder ships with a single position tip-down pocket clip. With a liner-style lock, it measures 4-3⁄4" closed and weighs 7.0 oz. Made in China. Suggested retail is $39.99.
