Amourette is native to Guyana. The subtle brown and black pattern is reminiscent of snakeskin. For this reason, it is also known as Snakewood in English and Schlangenholz in German. Care must be taken, however, not to confuse it with Guyana snakewood, which is far less dense.
Amourette has the added particularity of being very dense and it therefore will not float!
It is naturally used for knife handles, as well as violin bows. Due to its density, it is also used to make printer’s type.
The advantage of amourette is that it undergoes little deformation with time, but please do not forget that wood is a living material and will require a minimum amount of care, if you want to keep it for years to come. Your knife should, therefore, be kept in a dry place and cannot be cleaned in the dishwasher.
