Cocobolo - Orange to dark with deep figure
Of all the fancy hardwoods, Cocobolo features the most dramatic contrasts between light and dark swirls of beautiful heartwood figuring. It loves a polished finish and our craftsmen burnish Cocobolo to a glassy, high gloss shine, especially if you choose a smooth grip finish. Feast your eyes on gorgeous yellow, orange and reddish-browns mixed with dark, irregular traces of deep purple and black, weaving through the wood in straight or interlocked grain. Cocobolo is a popular choice for gun grip and knife makers for several reasons: it’s very hard and fine textured, it stands up well in hard use and it looks great!
