I've seen amboyna, and the colors blended a bit too much.

What woods would look best with copper?

Thanks.
Not sure what you are seeing, but they are closing out ALL the Jr. Retro!! Damn it I wanted to try this style too

Default Texas ebony or the like

I've done a fair number of pens in texas ebony where you get the dark dark coffee brown withe the occasional lighter cream colored streak...... they go swimmingly with copper.

Zebrawood looks great with copper hardware, especially if you can get it angle cut.
