Default Anyone know what wood this is?

The photo shows a pen that I made ages ago - back when I actually made slimlines on a regular basis. I've got a customer that wants this wood with better hardware, but without knowing what the wood is, all I can do is hope that the blank I buy is it.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

Looks just a bit orange for blood wood but padauk is a great guess.

Just added a bigger/higher resolution photo. I don't think that it's quite Bloodwood or African Padauk, though it could be another type of Padauk.

The more that I look at it, the more that it looks like Brazilian Cherry. It's pretty close, anyway.

Bloodwood or Redheart that's started to darken would be my guesses.
