EBONY - THE WOOD OF MYTHS AND LEGENDS
Ebony's extraordinary strength and deep black color has made this wood the topic of myths and legends. It was used to repel evil spirits back in the day. Even drinking glasses were made from ebony to protect the user from being poisoned.
Historically, this exquisite wood was only available to master craftsmen due to the unique nature of the material and its great expense. It has a long history of use in cabinetwork, for decorative items and crucifixes. As well as a wide array of musical instruments.
FOR MASTER CRAFTSMEN ONLY
Ebony is one of the very few types of wood that does not float on water but sinks to the bottom. It's heavy, of higher density and with a superior bend, strength compared to any other wood.
Thanks to these natural qualities, ebony finishes extremely smooth and is very durable. It's the only wood that can take decades of wear and tear in violins and other fretless instruments without breaking.
We at Knives by Sapega are happy to use ebony wood for our knives, ensuring their durability, strength, and balanced weight.
