Super stoked to be on the shortlist for one of @topnotchkustoms replica rostrums (here’s some teaser shots that he sent me)! As you’re probably well aware, it’s illegal to possess an authentic sawfish bill so going ersatz is the next best option. Notch created the incredible one hanging at @smugglerscovesf (not to mention the entire Cove itself, in addition to building out @whitechapelsf and @tntprospectingco as well as contributing to @falseidoltiki and @halepele). Notch’s artistry will be a crown jewel within the lanai decor of Our Big Luauski. #sawfish #tiki #tikibar #tikidecor #tikituesday https://www.instagram.com/p/BthnLVslWlJ/?utm_source=ig_tumblr_share&igshid=1k0sjgwvo4um6

Sawfish were once very common in their range, but are now amongst the most threatened marine fish. Although they are technically rays, not sharks, sawfish fins are prized for sharkfin soup, and sawfish parts are often used in Chinese, African, South American, Mexican, and Indian traditional medicine. They are also popular game fish, and their saws and teeth command high prices as souvenirs and trophies. Because of this frequent overfishing and rising pollution rates, most species of sawfish are now critically endangered.
