Etched Keepah Cuff Brass MedNathan Hicks
The Original Keeapah™ with the coast of Maine chart-etched directly on it is a collaboration between Fishbone Metal Works and Molly’s Maps. Molly Brown painstakingly hand draws the coast of Maine onto each cuff. They start in Lubec and trace the coast all the way to Kittery. The map is then etched onto the cuff and brought to a high polish or oxidized with a satin finish.
Each etched cuff is made out of the official tool used by lobstermen and women to measure and determine if a lobster is of legal size—or a “keeper.” Each cuff is marine-grade brass and hammer-forged by hand. Interior markings are legal limits of "keepers".
