Re: Hand tool

How did you find whale rib bone? That in itself makes this piece unique. What kind of thing do you think this could be used for? It's cool.

Re: Hand tool

I was gifted rib.
Current laws against hunting whales mean that using whale we must use a combination of ancient standings or pre-existing supplies, or bones from whales that have recently beached.
According to New Zealand tradition and law, Māori have first claim on part of the skeletons of any whales which strand and cannot be refloated. This is, however, a very limited supply.
