Turkish Walnut is a rich, dark chocolate colour at its best and is extensively used to stock firearms. Of course there is good reason for this as it is hard and durable and these properties make it ideal for a knife handle as well.
We loved this wood so much we handle our Boar range of knives with it and they look and perform impeccably.
All of our Walnut is imported directly from a Family wood yard in Turkey and forested sustainably. The trees that are being harvested now were planted by the current owners Grandfather and Great Grandfather and he is planting trees for his Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren.
Turkish Walnut is arguably the best in the World and it is probably the reason it is so popular as it much more highly figured and is the first choice for premier products.
This is a Super Grade wood.
