I think the wood is either bloodwood or redheart.I am not sure which.Very impressive, and a great idea to keep the teeth partially on for a scaler.
What is the handle made of?
It's a very nice color.
I turn wooden pens and pencils and this was a piece of wood that I had bought for a pen blank.Since you only need a small piece of wood to turn a pen, you can get a lot of exotic wood that either isn't available are is very expensive in large peices.What was used for the handle? Was it recycled from something else or fresh wood purchased for the sole purpose of making a handle?
