Kingwood - Violet to dark with deep figure
Kingwood – once known as Prince- or Princesswood – is an incredibly dense, very hard, classic furniture hardwood. You’ll find centuries-old examples of Kingwood in fine furniture and small turned items dating back to the 1700s. Kingwood practically glows in purple and soft brown hues with many fine darker stripes and occasional irregular swirls. Hogue’s craftsmen have turned Kingwood into grips with a spectacular smooth or checkered finish. This is not just a “fancy” hardwood – it’s a rare breed of wood fit for a king, or queen!
