Question, "Are your sharks durable?"
Answer = Thankfully we do NOT make our sharks from cheap brittle polystone like most other collectible producers. I make our sharks out of several different pure resins.
These different resin's properties work together to produce what we feel is the strongest possible shark. Unless soaked in liquid nitrogen my sharks will bend and distort long before breaking.
In fact we are always experimenting with materials and methods to improve every display we produce.
With this said my sharks are not toys. My sharks are the top-shelf of shark collectibles and I make them to outlive me and my customers. And they will last many decades if displayed properly and protected.
My wife and I like to go antique shopping and one of the core things I keep in mind producing these sharks is that I hope they will be passed down to the next generation and make their rounds among collectors for ages to come.
However nothing lasts forever. They can be damaged by direct sunlight, being placed near heat sources, children, pets, chemicals, liquid damage and they can be scratched through careless handling like any collectible, car, airplane, tank, house etc everything. We do not recommend our sharks for or to be played with by children.
Not something you can boast about with Polystones and other plastics that brittle, shrink and crack after only months or a few years time...☺
