Scalloped Hammerhead Sharks

Scalloped Hammerheads, or manō kihikihi in Hawaiian, are sleek, graceful, and quite shy. We found them schooling in the Cocos and Malpelo Islands, and also in Los Revillagigedos; what a humbling, and majestic sight.  We were so fortunate to have seen them, as they are endangered due to over finning. Hammerheads can be found schooling in groups numbering in the hundreds! Males grow to around 6 ft, females up to 8 ft. Their eyes and nostrils are found at either end of their uniquely-shaped head. There is a lot of inconclusive discussion as to why their heads are shaped as they are. Contrary to popular lore they are not aggressive, but really rather shy and skittish around divers. Sadly, these beautiful and graceful sharks are now officially on the CITES endangered species list.

Details

This Icon Hammerhead Shark Knuckleduster Ring is a small-scale sculpture – hand carved with attention to scale and detail, and a hollowed out centre helps to keep it light. We finish each shark by carefully grinding, filing and hand-polishing it, then hand-forming and forging a double ring and soldering it onto the shark.

This ring is intended to be worn across two fingers, thus the two rings. One is closed, the other is adjustable. The double ring makes it both stable and more comfortable, please specify your ring size for the ‘right’-side/closed ring.

This shark also available as a necklace.
