We had the super odd but cool request for Japanese whaling hooks. The organization responsible for whale necropsy in the area needed whaling hooks to help with their job of performing post mortems on washed up whales. They however are and anti whaling organization so the Japanese would not sell to them and they would not purchase them from the Japanese whaleling industry for obvious reasons. So with the help of Barnstable Bat and the village blacksmith Mark Grenier we put together some hooks. So if you know anyone in the country in the same predicament and in need of whaling accessories let them know.
