Tigerwood
Tigerwood is a rare exotic heavy dense wood that delivers a solid sharp tone—yet is remakably bouyant.

The heartwood is a bronze color highlighted by dark variegated streaks. The tiger-like grain is typically interlocked, but sometimes straight. Quartersawn wood produces an attractive ribbon pattern in the grain with alternating zones of dark and light wood figuring. The grain is certainly intriguing. But it also makes for a rough surface. Still, players clearly like the solid tone and weight.

Bone Rattling Facts
Tigerwood Bones are typically quite hard and dense. Tigerwood is nearly twice the hardness of oak, yet the wood sports a specific gravity of only .45. That makes tigerwood a very hard dense wood which is remakably bouyant. Most of our pairs seemed quite heavy. So the specific gravity and density data below is misleadingly low. None of the charts we found rated tigerwood with a specific gravity greater than 1.0. Just to find out for ourselves, we tossed a handful of bones into a tub of water to see what happens. The results were enlightening.

Test Results
Bones with a predominance of dark grain sink. Bones with a predominance of light grain float. So the weight, specific gravity, density, and hardness of your pair might be significantly more (or less) than our technical specs depending on the ratio of dark v light grain.
