Do you think that luffy is holding on one piece all along? The strawhat that he's handling might be the thing(One Piece) he's looking for all these years. Well i don't just sprout nonsense.
- Strawhat belongs to Roger(how many years has it been worn)
- The endurance of Strawhat is epic. How many burn and damages(done by buggy and loads more) has it survive and yet it still look as good as new and is in One Piece
It has been soaked so many times, blown away, burnt and even poisoned... but it's still good looking and therefore i think the Straw Hat passed down by roger to shanks and shanks to luffy is the real One Piece everyone is looking for.
I always considered the "Luffy's Strawhat is One Piece" as a (bad) joke. It's Luffy's greatest treasure, and that's why it's still unscathed ... And it's not like the hat was never damaged... Nami fixed it after Luffy's fight against Buggy in East Blue, didn't she?
How many times was it fixed... The endurance is beyond imagination
Not to mention he carry it 24/7 for like years and still in perfect shape?

i also think with the rich history oda has give the story, and the fact that gold rogers crew have been through the grandline, and the new world, that they wouldve seen and collected very rare items. I also think whitebeard knows what one piece is as well (as well as the higher ups of the government), and judging by the reaction whitebeard gave luffys hat I think we can deduce its not it.
all we know is "one piece" has to be something EPIC, and i think it is a treasure from the great nation that was destroyed.
I think the endurance of Luffy's shirt is also epic as well XD
Well actually what I mean is that maybe this is a manga so important things will always look brand new
C'mon... It's Luffy's treasure like Zoro's treasure is the Wado Ichimonji - they'll resist and survive miraculously probably any kind of fight, and even if they're broken, they'll get fixed. It's a part not only of their character design, but of their whole character like hair and eye colors.
well to throw something in
we always saw one piece, when luffy weared his hat
when he take it off for 2 years, we didnt saw anything the timeskip follows
coincidence or not, i would say that oda is genius enough to pull this off
lolol imagine luffy reaching raftel and a sign tells him "One Piece is the Straw Hat" LOLOLOL i cant imagine his reaction at that moment
Roger had the strawhat even when he was a kid; before the "golden era". Before the Roger Pirates conquered the GL. It's definitely Luffy's prized possession but I don't think it is "One Piece". <_<
Oda is too cool to do something like that.
I really seriously absolutely positively above all else hope that this theory isn't right...
I mean good for you if you're correct... but bad for the manga if it's correct also... It'll kinda throw me off as a huge fan, I'll just drop to a medium small fan...
I hope that straw hat won't be One Piece. It would be really a bad joke. Also I always thought of One Piece as a mixture of a real treasure and some mysterious facts that would be revealed and ruin the current World Order.
Why people don't want a really cool treasure as One Piece and propose this kind of stuff?
I mean...it could be a map to reach it, sure, but BEING One Piece seems kinda stretched to me.
That would effectively make Roger the biggest troll in manga history. He sent pirates from all over the world, on a seemingly fruitful journey in search for a hat he had already left with one of his crew mates? Nah
Yea sorry but I think you're wrong. I think Whitebeard knows what one piece is because Roger told him about it before Roger died.
If you reread Whitebeard's death again, you'll see what I mean:
One Piece has something to do with history of the world (tied in with Robin's dream) and has the capacity to turn the world upside down.
