Pikoi stone.
Description: 

Hawaiian Stone Weapon. Length: 3 3/4 inches (hour glass shaped), Diameter (at the widest point): 2 1/4 inches, Circumference (at the widest point): 7 7/8 inches, Color: light grey with spots of darker discolorment (slight), Finish: smooth, Weight: 1 lb. 4.6 oz. This weapon had two possible methods of deployment. The hour glass shape makes cradling the stone in the hand quite natural. However, grooves in the narrow midsection suggest that it could possibly have been attached to a handle and used like a hammer.
