This is a special slim threaded holder made out of Curly Buckeye Burl (Aesculus californica) with African Blackwood (Dalbergia melanoxylon) cap. California Buckeye is a unique timber capable of develop a metallic blueish gray tint. I have worked with the burly form, I have turned the blue stained wood, and now I am pleased to showcase the curly figure: gorgeous shimmering grains with a 3D effect and a very unusual color! This is something that you have to hold it in your hand, turn it around to see the play of light on the depth of the wood. Pictures can not capture that dynamic. The Blackwood cap look specislly handsom on this holder.
The crew-on cap makes this holder extra special and ensures that your content is secured. The slim profile fits unobtrusively in a purse or pocket for the people on the go. This holder can be used to hold toothpicks, pill, snuff, sewing needles, cash stash and small valuables...Also serves as a nice gift for someone who seems to have everything.
