Topic tags/keywords: bubinga alder ash basswood cedar cherry cocobolo mahogany maple oak padauk pine purpleheart wenge zebrawood

A family friend gave this to me and I have no idea nor did he, what this is. I make knives and like to know what I am working with as do my customers.

I know it it an exotic but that is all. I don’t believe it is cocobolo as the coloration is not the same. A rosewood maby??

Please help
