Brazilian Tulipwood

6438 BX-N


Price: 18.00 (Including VAT at 20%)

Quantity:

Dimensions: 26 x 125 x 38mm.

Dalbergia variabilis. Tulip is also called: jacaranda, bahia rosewood, pink wood, jacaranda Rosa, and bois de rose. This rosewood is a small tree (shrub) that averages 2-10" in diameter without sapwood. Most billets are 3-5" in diameter as this is a rare species and is only found in small 1" or 2" lumber or veneer and is not plentiful in either. There is a prominent heart defect that prevents many clean boards over 4-5" in width. In fact the average width is only 2-3/8". Weighing about 60 pounds per cubic foot, the wood is dense and takes a very nice polish. Used for fine articles including knife handles, turning, jewelry boxes, and pens. Brazil

As used for the Seven Oaks Knife. See http://www.english-handmade-knives.co.uk/SevenOaksMain.html.
