Amboyna Burl

Amboyna: Pterocarpus indicus: Beautiful coloration, famous for deep vivid red and oranges with snow white sapwood. Ambonya burl is incredibly sough after, with prices being driven up by veneer makers, guitar makers, turners and all manner of wood workers. The burl actually comes from the Narra tree, a humble member of the paduak family. The wood is dense, hard and takes an amazing finish. It has a pleasant smell reminiscent of baked goods. The wood is considered a classic handle wood used on show knives and high end user blades alike
