Hornbeam NEW 2018!- This wood is classified as Ironwood, like the Lignum-vitae, because they are both considered « as hard as a buffalo horn ». It is incredibly hard and dense but not too heavy.
Hornbeam wood has a beautiful color, whitish, and a reduced porosity that makes it humidity resistant. Its flexibility is great and after performing lots of tests we have observed that the impact resistance of this wood is second only to the one of the Lignum Vitae.
Sometimes this wood can have some dark knots that don't jeopardize its performance
