I was at the woodmill yesterday and they had a long board of anigre for $50 with nice figuring throughout. I bought it because my wife was with me and we enable each others' wood hoarding tendencies. I am thinking of using it in the middle of a hippie sandwich on a through neck. It seems to be about has hard as walnut on the janka scale. The one negative I read about it is that some anigre trees can have a lot of silica in them and therefore will dull tools pretty quickly. It's kind of a golden color with a very slight brownish hue. Anyone use this before?
