Mexican Cocobolo is a true rosewood and one of the world’s most attractive exotic woods. Its incredible hardness and density, combined with its deeper color tones, including shades of dark orange, deep yellow, burnt red, and rich brown tones, make it a favorite among knife makers around the world. Mexican Cocobolo wood stands up extremely well to repeated handling and exposure to moisture. These traits, plus its natural hardness, make it an excellent choice for use in gun grips and knife handles. Mexican Cocobolo wood knife handle scales machine very well and can be polished to a lustrous, glass-like finish.
The use of personal protective equipment when machining this wood is highly recommended. Our scales are "book matched", meaning they are a matched pair and are the mirror sides of the same saw cut. This makes them much more sought after as handle material, considering that you can mirror the same grain look on both sides of your knife or gun handle. Try some of our Mexican Cocobolo on your next knife handle project and reward your finished work with the performance and presentation that it deserves.
