African Pommele Bubinga Crochet Hook
This beautiful hand turned crochet hook is made from Pommele Bubinga. It's shaped with a larger handle to relieve stress on the hand and wrist when crocheting. The hook has an Ergonomic shape that fits nicely in the hand.
The crochet hook measures 6" to 6 1/4" long and is 3/4" to 1" in diameter at its widest.
Because this hook is handcrafted there will be variation in appearance, grain and color. No two Hooks will be the same! Pictures are examples of what you will receive (sorry picture will be up soon) Pictures with hook blanks show two on left in pommele, one on right straight grain.
Bubinga can grow to very large trees ranging of 130-150 feet tall and 3-6 ft trunk diameter.
Bubinga has a close resemblance to Rosewood, and is often use in place of more expensive woods. Yet Bubinga also features a host of stunning grain figures which make this wood truly unique. Bubinga also has an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio.
Common uses include veneer, inlays, fine furniture, cabinetry, turnings, and other specialty items. Since Bubinga trees can grow very large, natural-edge slabs of the wood have also been used in tabletops and other specialized projects.
