Burmese Teak Burl

Teak Burl: Tectona grandis: 
To many, teak is the most common exotic wood they interact with, its even, oily texture and extreme water resistance make the lumber an excellent choice for high wear or wet areas, but its relatively understated appearance keeps it out of decorative uses. Thats not the case for these Burmese Teak burls, they show incredibly interesting color, chatoyancy and grain folds within the complex pin eyes and layer figure of these blocks. The wood is fairly dense, completly water proof and polishes to a gleaming shine with only a buffing.

 

An excellent choice for kitchen and camp knives alike, teak burl is a real treat to use, and the strong teak odor persists for years.
