Cocobolo (Dalbergia retusa) is a member of the rosewood family and comes from Costa Rica and Nicaragua. One of the most colourful woods available, it varies from red to black, dark brown to gold and yellow. It often shows similar abstract figures of spider webbing and landscapes as brazilian rosewood does. The wood is very hard and dense, finishes beautifully and is very durable. Cocobolo is quite rare, so only very small amounts come onto the world's market. This wood is perfect for attractive knife handles, gun scales and pen blanks.
