Santos Mahogany Pen Blank
|Though it resembles true mahogany in appearance, Santos Mahogany is not in fact mahogany, nor is it related. It is much denser, heavier and stronger than its namesake, and for this reason, is also more difficult to work. For best results, use sharp tools and light cuts. Color can vary from a light golden brown to a dark burgundy, and tends to turn more red as it ages. The grain has medium to fine texture and a nice natural luster. When turned, Santos Mahogany emits a pleasant spicy scent that is sometimes used as an ingredient in perfumes.
