Precious Wood

Desert Ironwood

Desert Ironwood

This wood is simply fascinating. The desert ironwood, a dead wood, is found mostly in the Sonoran desert and it is a very hard wood. The density is higher than water and it is incredibly tough. Due to the cracking of the tribes, one must expect a blend of about 90%, resulting in prices for knife handles and blocks to increase significantly. A price of 80 - 120 Eur for a knife handle block in very good quality is not uncommon.

It can be cut and grind very well. You should have good suction.

Sometimes also i may be wrong, so please let me know if you should find any mistakes! Thank you for your help!
