Bookmatched Figured Rambutan Knife Scales

Southeast Asian Rambutan, Nephelium lappaceum, is a medium-sized tropical tree that grows within about 10 degrees of the Equator.   The fruit produced by the tree is also known as "Rambutan". The earliest record of Rambutan trees show that they were cultivated by the Malayan jungle tribes around their temporary settlements. Rambutan trees grow to a height of 35-60 ft. producing boards that are 2-5 ft. long with widths of 2-8".  The tree grows from sea level up to 1,600 ft. with best growth in deep soil; clay loam or sandy loam rich in organic matter, and thrives on hilly terrain as it requires good drainage. The wood is similar in color to Goncalo Alves and equally as dense and durable. It is perhaps a bit deeper in its orange color and has some pink or red colors as well. It can be found with a dense flame figure that rivals the nicest curly maple. Sharp blades are needed as the wood is extremely dense and tough. It is worth the effort as the high natural polish possible with this wood is very beautiful.

Snakewood Bookmatch Knife Scales

Piratinera guianensis, Snakewood, is also known as Letter wood, Speckled wood, and Leopard wood. Its Latin name literally means Guiana sea pirate. Considered by experts to be the World's rarest commercially available species, Snakewood is difficult to work (dry wood can still check if it is heated while sanding). Despite its difficulty in working, it is a beautiful wood that has rich brown, red and black in a traditional Viper pattern. This is undoubtedly where it acquired the name Snakewood. The Snakewood tree is small and slender growing only up to a foot in diameter and 40-60 feet tall. There is a varying amount of figure in each tree so each log can produce very different grades of lumber. Uses include: violin bows, parasols, canes, pens, bottle stoppers, umbrella handles, pool cues, fishing pole butts and more! Primarily found in Suriname.Snakewood logs are also sold by the log or 1/2 log, please inquire.

Bookmatched Exhibition Xylay Lace Knife Scales

Xylay Lace, Afzelia xylocarpa, grows in South East Asia in a narrow band in deciduous forests. It can reach 90' tall with a trunk up to 5' in diameter in a mature specimen. The wood color is an orange/red.  The wood is moderately dense for an exotic yet works and finishes well.  It is an open grain wood so a sanding sealer works well for sealing the pours prior to finishing.  Seeds of the tree are harvested for local herbal medicinal purposes. The highly-figured lumber is often sold as Afzelia Xylay. The wood is used for ornamental woodturning, pens, knife handles, carvings, and musical instruments. Dry and ready to use.
