Ships on January 19, 2017
Bocote (Cordia spp.) has a yellowish brown body with dramatic dark brown to almost black stripes. Color tends to darken with age. The grain patterning can be quite striking, particularly on...
- Striking, zebra-like contrasts
- Medium texture and a naturally oily/waxy feel
- Usually figured
- Interlocked grain
Partly good blank
I use Bocote in many of my pens, and usually buy big blocks that I cut down myself. I tried these precut blanks in my last order, and 2 blanks out of 10 were unuseable due to being mostly white sapwood. I got the more expensive precut blanks expecting to get all good blanks. I would only use them if I got them at the retail store and could check them myself.
