  • Swordfish Bills - Representing Hawaiian Lua Weapons with added Mako or Tiger Shark teeth.

  • The bills from billfish such as swordfish and different species of marlin are a limited resource.  Fisheries of all types are under government limitations to preserve all fishery resources.  However, we have been collecting bills from legally caught fish within the Pacific fishery for the past few years not knowing when these government policies may make sword and marlin fishing closures.  Even with a good collection of fish bills in stock these bills are a valuable and natural resource, especially once you add the hand-crafted quality workmanship that goes into each and every one.

  • Custom Knot/Rope Work (Marlinspike Seamanship) - Available on almost any object, as shown by the photo of turkshead on the porch pillars photo.  Call for pricing...
