I just finished adding a bunch of new blocks of African Blackwood to our web store.
Blackwood is a black/brown hardwood that polishes up beautifully and is very durable.
and.....it's not expensive.

There are several smaller pieces to be used as ferrule, spacer or half handle material.
And a bunch of full length pieces.
Some of these have unusual grain patterns as well.

At first glance the wood looks black. When in direct light there is a metallic golden brown flash that will appear.

Click on the photo to go to the Natural Hardwoods (http://www.burlsource.us/servlet/the-Natural-Wood-BLOCKS/Categories) section of the web store where the new blocks are located.
