Why is Cocobolo so Exspensive?

Why is Cocobolo so Expensive?

12 inch Tapered Cocobolo Traditional OctagonCocobolo Dalbergia retusa is the long searched for wood in martial arts.  It is in the family of the Rosewoods Dalbergia nigra. In part it is so saute after because of it’s weight and density but also because of the beautiful colors and patterns that appear in the wood’s grain.  With this wood however it is not the demand that is the problem as much as it is the supply.  The first price point that drives it up is being able to find it.  The second is how much it costs once you have located something you can use.  Unlike red oak or ash, cocobolo is a medium to small sized tree that has fewer straight branches.  It is much harder to mill and even harder to get good undamaged straight boards so you can work with them.  The last price point that adds more to the final cost is how hard it is to work with.  The first problem; the saw dust is poisonous to humans.  Don’t get me wrong, all saw dust is bad for people and use of a mask is the general practice, but with cocobolo it is down right hurtful.  It is much like getting poison ivy on the inside of your lungs.  Not fun.  So we use suits and masks and it’s hot and miserable doing so.

In the end it’s always worth it but much more time and work go into things made of cocobolo.  It’s a rare wood loved by all the martial arts.  At USA Nunchaku Co. we hunt down cocobolo every week to use in our wood shop so we can bring you great nunchaku.
