If you could possibly post a picture of a "tiger wood" blank, that might be a help.

The tiger wood that I have seen does not strike me as being particularly remarkable or overly desirable so I am a bit puzzled and would like to see an example of what you want. . The same name could be given to different woods, of course.

Of course ... also .... there are many criteria for choosing a blank material .... I am not denying that.
After all, a pen blank made from a dugout bench from Yankee Stadium would obviously make a "desirable" pen no matter what it looks like.

So I am just curious, that's all. . I do have some pen blanks labelled "Tiger Wood" but they don't look like the sort of wood you might be prepared to pay shipping on from Canada !!! 😁;)

Matter of fact, I don't know where I would put hands on those blanks so I hope you don't ask ME to post a photo of THEM .... LOL !!!

Also known as goncola alves. Very pretty when it’s figured, can be plain looking when there’s no figure.

If you live near a Rockler, a Goncalo Alves (tigerwood) pen blank is $1.99. Rockler's math geniuses also sell a five-pack for $10.99.


(Rockler sells online and phone order, too.)
