    Pretty cool. "Fire-welded" and a real Kramer pin, to boot! Some Germans make really good stuff.

    Yeah. Like Shamwows.

    Did "African Blackwood" not sound fancy enough, so they referred to it as "Grenadille" instead? Racists!!

    Grenadille is the more precise name. At least in a german translation "African Blackwood" would be "African Ebony" and Grenadille is not from the Ebony Family, but a kind of Palisander.

    I stand corrected then. I had read it was interchangeable and used to describe african blackwood and some similar ones.

    yep. grenadilla (the stuff clarinets and oboes are usually made of) is a different wood.

    Yes it is interchangeable, but strictly speaking not correct. At least not from a botanical point of view.
