I was incredibly fortunate to receive this beautiful head and tail from a very interesting shark, the Thresher shark. These sharks are rarely caught in NSW waters by commercial fishermen,Continue
Simon has been preparing and restoring shark jaws since the early 1980’s. In the early days, he worked primarily with gamefishermen on shark’s jaws that were caught during tournament fishing.
These days Simon, like the vast majority of the game fishing community he works with, is a strong proponent of catch and release fishing. Now the majority of fresh jaws he receives are the result of record fishing.
Meanwhile, he is also working more and more with both fishermen and collectors to restore old, dusty and often very badly cleaned 1970’s jaws that have had hidden away in storage for years.
Additionally, there has also been a large number of Great White shark jaws which are now surfacing which have languished in a garage somewhere, and suddenly, due to the rarity of the species, have been re-discovered and the owners wish to have them restored to their former glory.
Simon is a member of the Australian based Oceania Chondrichthyan Society, which facilitate education, conservation and scientific study of chondrichthyan fishes (sharks, skates, rays, and chimaeras).
Quality Shark Jaw Cleaning
There is no easy way of cleaning shark jaws; just a lot of patience and attention to detail.
The process of cleaning, whitening and drying the jaws takes on average about 3 months as the jaws are allowed to dry naturally before any of the final touches are applied in order to produce a superior result. Clean-a-Jaw has worked with all types of sharks: from the great white sharks to the tiger sharks.
I have just received this very old and beautiful White shark jaw from a client to restore. Originally caught in Tasmania in the early 80’s, it’s had some “work” doneContinue
