This is a special slim threaded holder made out of Black & White Ebony ((Diospyros embryopteris) with Leadwood (Combretum imberbe) cap. Black & White Ebony is a wood like no other: the contrast is striking, the wild pattern is even more extravagant. This holder is turned cross-grain to show off this beautiful timber. Like any other ebony, this wood is extremely hard, heavy and very fine grain, just what I love in a timber. The cap is Leadwood from Africa, another hard, heavy wood. They don't call it Leadwood for nothing.
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.
