    Both right then,


    Cocobolo Rosewood Logs

    Cocobolo Rosewood (Dalbergia Retusa) is one of the finest, and most beautifully figured woods in the world. True Rosewoods in the dalbergia family have colors as widely diverse as a rainbow. An incredibly figured wood, cocobolo is very hard with brilliant colors and amazing black stripes. Oranges, reds, browns and blacks all swirled uniquely together are a trademark of this fantastic wood. The best cocobolo comes from Nicaragua as wood from this source is harder and more colorful than Mexican cocobolo. The King Grade of Cocobolo Rosewood are hand-picked pieces chosen for amazing figure from crotches, curly, fiddleback, burls, swirls, whirls, etc.

    Cocobolo is a great choice for grips. It can be found in a variety of colors and shades.
