The leopardwood is another treasure of the rainforest. It is a heavy dark reddish brown wood with a large mottled or lacy 3D pattern. In terms of texture, the leopard tree is somewhat reminiscent of Layswood, but still it is distinguished by a brighter, textured pattern and a noticeably higher density - up to 885 kg / m3.
The leopard tree grows throughout Central and North America. In height, it reaches 30 meters, and in diameter - up to 1m.
Leopard wood is considered moderately hard, but it is easy to process, glues, stains and polishes well. The blunting of the cutting tool when processing leopard wood is moderate. The wood of the Leopard tree is very resistant to decay and damage from other environmental factors. In most cases, the wood of the leopard tree is used for inlay, in decorative products to create a contrasting effect. However, leopard wood, in all its characteristics, is excellent for making knife handles and cutting tools, if you want to create a bright, unique and eye-catching visual effect.
