Black & White Ebony is on the most exotic and striking woods I have ever turned. The contrasting grain always provides a striking natural beauty. This piece is more "Black & Tan" but it still gets its point across. With the large hilt at the top of the wood, you can see how the colors intertwined. This piece is about 6 1/2 inches in total length without about 4 1/2 inches in ebony. It has a chrome head.

With the extremely rare and premium nature of Black & White Ebony, this piece is priced at $40.  If interested, please use the contact info in the 'about me' section.

Black and white ebony (Diospyros embryopteris) is an exotic wood with color that will vary, usually uniformly black with light-colored bands, pale to medium brown zones, or with marked contrast between almost white and black wood. The wood has a fine texture with mostly straight grain. A rare find. The wood is exceptionally dense and strong. It comes from Southeast Asia and Laos.
