Item details

African Blackwood grows across the dry savanna regions of central and southern Africa. It is almost uniformly black, with some slightly lighter streaks or patterns within the grain. Both ends have been sealed with wax to protect from rot.

Group photos are representative examples. Every piece has slightly different grain/color patterns, and no two are exactly alike. Actual product sold is ONE block, one PAIR of scales, or ONE pen blank.

Each block is approximately 5" long, 1-1/2" wide, and 1" thick.
Scales are sold as a pair, and each is approximately 5" x 1-1/2" x 3/8".
Pen Blanks are 5" x 3/4" x 3/4"

Excellent for making custom knife handles, inlays, or turning pens.

African Blackwood is listed on CITES appendix II under the genus-wide restriction on all Dalbergia species—which also includes finished products made of the wood. It’s also reported by the IUCN as being near threatened. Technically it doesn’t meet the Red List criteria of a vulnerable or endangered species, but is close to qualifying and/or may qualify in the near future.
