LV-2178 Leadwood & Ebony Slim Pill Box, Toothpick Holder, Needle Case-SCREW CAP

LV-2178 Leadwood & Ebony Slim Pill Box, Toothpick Holder, Needle Case-SCREW CAP

$ 68.00

This is a pretty slim threaded holder made out of Leadwood (Combretum imberbe) with Mun Ebony (Diospyros mun) cap. Another heavy metal wood from Africa, this piece of Leadwood is probably the second toughest wood I have to turn due to it's interlocking grain and hardness (the other troublesome one is Brazilian Ebony). But it's all well worth it. The figure of Leadwood is subtle but beautiful and the thing polish up so nicely that I am willing to forgive it's recalcitrant. I capped it wiyh Mun Ebony, a very hard and heavy wood but extremely well behave.

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.
