I just walked down to my shop to see if I have anything that is similar to this. I think Limba comes the closest. The grain is very similar. Limba is a little more grayish in color. Based on memory, I think it also looks a little like Afata. Unfortunately, my last piece of afata (except for scraps someplace in the scrap pile) left the house on Wednesday.

I don’t really understand the specifications because they are using terms I am not familiar with. Can you comment on hardness and weight?
