Bocote (Cordia gerascanthus) grows in Mexico and Central South America. Bocote is available only in small amounts because the trees do not grow large in diameter. Hard and heavy, it has a medium density and works very well. Its colour ages from bright golden yellow to warm dark brown, the attractive figure is accentuated with black stripes, sometimes highly figured with birds eyes. The wood appears oily with a medium lustre. Bocote takes an outstanding finish and it is one of the most sought after woods in knife making and turning.Sample photos, actual pieces may differ.
