Serpent wood


Serpent wood (Marmoroxylon racemosum) is a precious wood native to the Guianese forest. The handle is made of deep yellow fibers and marbled with darker spots that are reminiscent of snake scales. This rare and precious wood grows exclusively in dry soils in primary forest. It can be recognized by its characteristic lumpy trunk.
