This Jobillo bottle opener has a chrome head. This is my first time working with Jobillo and didn't know what to expect.  Once I put the polish on the wood, it did present with a nice irredescent look. The grain is spotty and not very uniform. The back side (not pictured) is almost a solid yellow/orange with just the hints of dark brown showing in the pores of the wood.  The overall length of this piece is about 6-1/4 inches with about 4-1/4 coming from the wood.

This piece is $30.  If interested, please use the contact information found in the about me or contact section of the blog.

Jobillo (Ho be yo) is found between southern Mexico and South America. It typically has a light reddish brown heartwood streaked with sharply contrasting dark reddish to black band that resemble burn marks. This member of the cashew family.
