Figured Goncalo Alves... Oh what a beautiful wood!


Also known as "Tigerwood" or "Brazillian Tigerwood" can be found from Mexico to Brazil.  And where regular Goncalo Alves can be purchased for knife scales, the pieces that are figured and culred can be harder to find but have so much character it makes them a prized posession with knife makers and wood workers alike!


Goncalo Alves Janka rating is 2,170 lbf (9,640 N) Heartwood is typically a medium reddish brown with irregularly spaced streaks of dark brown to black. Color tends to darken with age.  Goncalo Alves has excellent weathering properties, and is rated as very durable regarding decay resistance.


These photos and video are examples of what I have and not the exact piece you are getting.  Remember, with woods, when cut and shaped, it changes the grains and colors.  NOTE: There is only one of each and it is a first-come-first-serve basis. I do my best to track inventory but if an item is sold out I will notify you and we can find a replacement or I can refund your purchase.
