Cocobolo (Dalberga retusa) is one of the most sought after species for turners. Cocobolo’s colors range from yellow, orange, red, and shades of brown with streaks of black or purple. Sapwood is typically a very pale yellow. Pen turners are notorious for wanting to try new and exotic woods for their pens, pencils and other small project kits. The challenge has been accessibility. We have sourced a wide variety of sizes of this most popular species.
