Cocobolo

Cocobolo Dalbergia retusa
Cocobolo is a member of the Rosewood family. It grows in the drier uplands on the Pacific side of Mexico down to Panama. Cocobolo wood shines up to a nice luster and can be nailed or screwed easily. Cocobolo is an excellent hardwood for making knife handles because it is waterproof. It smells like lilacs while it is being sawn or sanded. Exotic Cocobolo varies in color from red to yellow-orange and striped with black to lighter black, often with hints of purple which makes for an amazing contrast. This hardwood darkens with age.
Typical Uses for Cocobolo: knife handles, game calls, pens, pool cues, peppermills, bowls, wine bottle stoppers and other ornamental turnings.
Source Region: Mexico, South America
