Ok what is it.


Recommended Posts

Also called karazi-zame (飾り鮫) or kenjo-zame (献上鮫) . See below for more info, I've seen some sell for 4000+. All in all a very nice curiosity - but beware of CITES (even though antique, some customs will give you a hard time over this!)

Usually the larger the nodules, the higher the price on rayskin - the one on YJP seems to be sharkskin however - no real reference for that one, but will go up from starting price I imagine.
