Ebony (Diospyros crassiflora) is an all time favourite of woodworkers since ancient times, already the Egyptians used it due to its brilliant appearance and good qualities. The wood is hard and heavy, has a very straight and fine texture with metallic lustre, it finishes smoothly and takes a high glossy polish. West African ebony colour is generally black but very often typical lighter streaks may appear, giving the wood yet more attractivity. Old stock quality, seasoned for ca. 10 years. This wood is a all-time-favourite throughout the centuries and if you hold it in your hands, you will know why!
