Because this hook is handcrafted there will be variation in appearance, grain, size and color. All though Holly is a whitish wood it can and will contain dark spots, knots and blemishes. These are not defects. It's wood! Enjoy it variation and beauty! While there are slight variation the basic Ergonomic shape is maintained. No two handcrafted hooks will be the same!

The bark of holly tends to be patternless, rough-textured, and medium gray, often with a tinge of olive. Older trees feature wart-like outgrowths.
Weighing in at about 36 lbs. per cubic foot dry, holly rates as moderately heavy and hard, but not strong. With indistinct, fine grain, the wood of holly displays no figure.
Color ranges from an almost pure white sapwood to heartwood with a creamy tone, and the two can be indistinguishable. To prevent a permanent discoloration called "blue stain," loggers cut holly only in the winter months, and then process it quickly.
