(STAND SOLD SEPARATELY) Introducing our Hawaiian short spear, also known as the “Ihe”, handcrafted from monkey-pod wood and measuring 28″ in length, 1.75 inches wide, and 1.3 inches thick. The spear features colored chicken feathers and artificial shark teeth. Personalize your spear with your name, title, date, and a one-sentence thank you message on one side, all included in the cost. You can also opt to add a tribal pattern at the end of the spear.

For other occasions like birthdays, Father’s Day, graduation, or weddings, make the name bigger so it stands out and limits the customization to two lines. If you want more words and images, our engravers will work with you to create the best layout. Please note that there is limited space available, so keep it to four lines at most.

Please indicate if you want the tribal pattern at the end of the spear.  If you have a lot of words and images, engravers will suggest shortening the tribal pattern lessening the number of words, or putting some of the words on the back (cost an extra $25 paid at pick up).   The display stand is $20 and available for purchase on this website)

(If you can’t tell, the name on the spear is added through Photoshop.  The rest of the engraving shows how the engraving will look on the spear.)

Dimensions: 28″ x 2″ x 1″ (71.12 cm x 5.08 cm x 2.54 cm)
