The Meaning of the Hawaiian Bone Fish Hook

The deep connection and reverence the Hawaiians had for the ocean created the meaning behind the Hawaiian fish hook necklace. It represents strength, prosperity, abundance, and a great respect for the sea. Ancient Hawaiians believed that a bone necklace takes on part of the spirit of those who wear it. Hawaiian tradition says that fish hooks provide good luck and safe journey when going fishing and traveling. Given the relationship that Hawaiians have with the ocean, these fish hook necklaces are found hanging around the necks of Hawaii's best anglers. The "Makau" symbolizes the strength and determination of these fishermen.

The Tradition of the Hawaiian Bone Fish Hook Necklace

In the same tradition of the Hawaiian chant, which was passed down from generation to generation, so should the fish hook necklace be handed down from father to son. A carving that has been worn by family members through many generations contains the spirit of all those people and is truly a great and powerful heirloom. And for this reason, we have a lifetime guarantee on our necklace cords.

The Specifics of the Bone Fish Hook

Each fish hook is hand-crafted in the traditional "Hawaiian-style". This "lima Hana" (hand carved) hook is from the femur bone of the water buffalo, known as the carabao. The edges are smoothly rounded and the piece has a highly polished luster which feels good to the touch. Over time, your bone pendant will "pick up" sebum, your body's natural oil. This results in the pendant slowly taking on a slight soft honey golden hue. The bone carving acquires the essence, or "mana", of its owner. This is one of the great beauties of bone crafted jewelry. The carving measures 1" by 2". This bone fish hook comes with an adjustable soft cotton linen beige woven cord. Adjustable up to 26", a perfect fit for any style outfit. Cord is hand braided to replicate Hawaiian cordage.

    This is a review by one who is so pleased he can barely type. I ordered this item knowing that it may take some time to arrive from Hawaii, but much to my delight, it shipped same day, so the wait began. I watched with great excitement as it arrived at the various mail drops on the island and eventually was gently placed upon the transport for the hop over the water. I noticed the delivery date was scheduled for the 9th of May. No worries, until I remembered that I had an event to attend that day and had to leave at around 1pm. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I wouldn't be there for the arrival of my precious package from the magical islands. SO....... Being the crafty type, and by crafty, I'm not talking hammer and glue. I mojo'd that the hook would be here by the time I needed to leave my house. And BAM, 10 min before I needed to be out the door, a familiar sound assailed my senses. The wirrrr wirrrr of the mail man's vehicle. And there, as I watched, a glowing spirit of Federal Mail Delivery carefully placed my desire within the receptacle of so many other joys in my life via Amazon. My hook had arrived. I gleefully ran to the box and retrieved the treasure of the seas. I opened the package and spied a curious package within a package which contained 2 candies. Over joyed and delighted that I had something to snack on whilst I opened the main gift. As an aside, the candies WERE VERY GOOD! I carefully, and with some giddiness opened the plastic which contained the magic of the Hawaiians and unfurled the cord upon which it rested. A hook of the most wonderful and delightful construct. It was truly a piece of craftsmanship that spoke of generations of practice. Wonderfully wrought. The size is great. The carving precise. The lashing intricate and well executed. I must say that I smelled the salt of the ocean as the wind tossed back my long hair and knew that my journeys will be safe on land, or over the seas. Get yours. You won't regret it. Ma halo, and Aloha!

    This necklace is AWESOME!

    They shipped it the same day I ordered it, and it got to Texas rather quickly.

    Upon opening the package, Maui(who kinda looked like The Rock for some reason) appeared and told me of the mystical powers of his fish hook before turning into a REALLY big bird and flying off into the sunset.

    Not gonna lie... did not see that coming.

    Visits from a demigod aside, the hook and cord are both really well made, and I like that it's a slide adjust.

    Overall, it just has a really earthy, chill vibe to it(spirit of aloha!)

    Also liked that they sent a card and a few pieces of candy with it.

    Would DEFINITELY recommend! 11/10!

    As a lover of the sea and of Hawaiian culture, I purchased this Hawaiian fish hook necklace for myself to show off the appreciation. This necklace clearly has hand made all over it. A true piece of craftsmanship made with love and care. The chain is a woven material that weaves its way around the top of the hook, and looks absolutely stunning. The hook also came with two pieces of candy, which I thought was a lovely sentiment. This is a treasurable necklace. I also appreciated that the crafters took the time to reach out to me to ensure that the hook arrived okay. You don't get that from most sellers.

    Exactly what I had been looking for. When it first arrived I took a hot needle to the hook and three beads. All passed the test. Now after a few weeks the striations in the bone are showing. Great product at a great price. Yesterday my sister saw it and today I believe she ordered one too.

    Thank you!

    This has become my #1 favorite in my collection. It is beautifully made and is adjustable using a bead slide so that I can wear it long (just below mid-chest, I am 6' 2") when wearing a tank or t-shirt or shorten it up when wearing an open collar shirt. It comes as one peice (the picture might make some of you think that it is two separate pieces). When I removed it from its bag the cord was mildly kinked and wouldn't hang straight. That was easily solved by wetting the cord, gently pulling it straight and hanging it from a hook to dry. I will be purchasing more as gifts and also the black version to contrast against light colored shirts.

    This is a nice piece...I love mine. I wanted to get one while in Maui but found mostly trinkets and nothing made on the Island (affordable) so I actually orderd this while in Maui and it was waiting for me when i got home. You even get a card with history/significance of the hook. Most importantly the $$ is going back to the island and it's residents.

    Awesome quality. Holds up in the water, I’ve worn it in showers, pools, and the ocean none of them had any effect what so ever. I love the way it looks and is super easy to skip over my head (I have a big head). Overall it’s a great buy for the price. I was worried because the pictures did look like plastic by once I got it all my fears were put to rest. Also the bagging is cool, it contains some local goodies as well as an information card explaining more about the necklace and it’s importance.

    Bought this as a birthday present for our daughter. Resembles the one Maui wears in the latest kids movie. It is authentic and came from Hawaii. It was packaged in a manilla envelope with a story inside, along with candy! The cording on it is beautifully braided.
