Has anybody ever handled or worked with that? I bought a few pieces from an ebay seller I have had good experiences with and generally trust, but I was surprised that this was much lighter compared to other ebonies I have handled. Almost like a redwood. I had it sitting for a year and now got back a few pieces from K&G, looking forward to seeing what they will be like. Just don't want to claim it is something when it is not. The pieces actually were lightly spalted, and they look very nice. Will try to take a pic in the next days.
