Koa wood possesses a wide range of colors from light brown to deep red and brown hues. When polished it can take on a catseye gemstone-like brilliance and seem as if lit from within.
Koa is an extra rare wood which is only available in Hawaii. It is considered second to none because of its spectacular appearance.
Only Koa trees that have fallen naturally can be harvested. This conservation protection combined with rapid growth of Koa trees makes this an exceptionally sustainable product.
Koa’ strength is similar to black walnut and works quite well for hand and power tool production.
