Can you take a pic of the end of the object as well as some close ups in better lighting. This will help to get a good ID.

I'm seeing Sperm whale tooth here.

Your mother wouldn't happen to be a sailor on a whaling ship I suppose?:P

 

A picture of the bottom end will confirm or kill my suspicion.

I agree. It's a sperm whale tooth with any doubt.

I, too, see a sperm whale tooth, but it can't be determined from the photo whether it is real or cast.

Are those bite marks on the surface, or am I dreaming of it? :)
