A few days ago, I was able to get something very rare for you: a large dalbergia trunk weighing nearly a ton in exceptionally great quality! The trunk was almost complete and has a very fine grain and eyes throughout. Quite a look! Better than I’ve ever seen in a dalbergia. An absolute rarity.
The trunk has already been largely rough cut and is now in our warehouse. We’ll soon be offering pieces of this African blackwood with a truly unique grain.

African blackwood (Dalbergia melanoxylon)

African blackwood (Dalbergia melanoxylon) may be confused for ebony, but since it is a rosewood this is inaccurate. It imported mainly from Mozambique and Tanzania and has become famous for its absolutely outstanding resonance. It has thus earned its place in the making of woodwinds, especially clarinets, oboes, and flutes. It is also traditionally used in the great Highland bagpipe. Because of its hardness and density, it provides a particularly high-quality, harmonious sound.
The wood ist very hard and heavy. Its blackish-violet color and grain is special and very subtle, but can usually be seen upon closer inspection once finished.

The burl wood as you see here is extremly rare !
