Manuel S. Mattos

Aloha,

My name is Manuel S. Mattos III. I have been making Hawaiian War Clubs “lei-o-nano” for about 8 years. My father, who has been making Hawaiian war clubs for approximately 20 years, inspired me to learn more about my Hawaiian culture.

After doing tons of research, I found the making and history of Hawaiian war clubs quite fascinating. My work is primarily ancient style, using real sharks teeth on Hawaiian endemic wood.

Types of wood: Koa, ‘ili’ ahi (sandalwood) and Milo.

Type of sharks teeth: Bull and tiger.
