About Ebony wood:

The hallmark of ebony wood is its striking black or black/brown color, accentuated by fine, clearly visible stripes that give the wood a uniquely captivating texture.

Once processed, ebony wood boasts an exceptionally smooth surface, elevating its aesthetic appeal. Beyond its visual allure, ebony wood possesses a range of impressive physical properties, making it a sought-after material in various applications.

As a rare and precious wood, ebony has a high density, considerable strength, and exceptional resistance to aging. These qualities make it a prime choice not only for decorative purposes but also for functional applications that demand durability, such as knife handles. The combination of its refined appearance and resilience ensures that ebony wood continues to be a popular choice for those seeking both elegance and longevity in their woodcrafted pieces.

Due to the use of natural materials, the appearance varies from one handle to another. The images shown are not contractually binding.
