If anyone is looking to own a turely unique and rare cue, they should take a look at the new Blue Grass Cue on Nineballking.com. Look under custom cues and then under exotic cues. The Harris is made of tulip wood and ebony. It features three scrimshawed ivory windows with different art designs in each. I will take any trades or offers that are within reason.

The artwork on the scrimshaw looks very amateurish, more fitting of a tatto artist. Unless these photographed poorly this cue would be hard to sell at the price your asking.

I was going to say the same thing but changed my mind. To be honest, that scrimshaw is awful. Check out this guy and see what good scrimshaw looks like. Take a look at the Mosconi scrim he did on a cue inlay.

I guess it may be bad photography, but the art work in the ivory looks great. It may not be as detailed as the Paul Mottey fish and buterfly cue, but then again, this cue does not cost $15,000.00 or more. Remember Richard Harris is a master cue maker, not a scrimshawist. I feel his drawing add to the cue.

Here's the link for anybody that wants to check it out.

That's some incredible stuff.
$200 per sq. in. seems pretty reasonable for that kind of work.
