Ironwood is a very hard and dense wood, somewhat hard to work with, but it is absolutely one of my favorite woods when it is finished!  When in the sun, the lighter areas shimmer in the light!  It turns out fantastic!  Ironwood is used for show pieces because of the uniqueness of the characteristics.

Desert Ironwood comes from Southwestern United States and Northwestern Mexico.  Ironwood heartwood color ranges from an orangish yellow to a darker red or brown, with darker violet to black streaks. Some pieces may be almost entirely black. Narrow yellow sapwood is clearly demarcated from heartwood.

Due to the small size of the tree, grain can be wild or gnarled. Fine even texture and excellent natural luster.

Desert Ironwood is perhaps one of the most highly-regarding of all woods in knife-making.  With its density, stability, and grain patterns and colors creating a unique combination of characteristics that’s ideal for custom decorative handles. It’s also favored for carving by the indigenous Seri people now living in the state of Sonora in Mexico.
