Rustic and beautiful! The slicer has texture as well as dramatic color. Great accessory for stainless appliances, deep color and rustic kitchen decor. An incredible conversation piece for entertaining or your own household gathering. Pronounced "WHEN-gii" or "WHEN-ghay", the wood has excellent strength and hardness properties and is also dark enough to be used as a substitute for ebony. The color is a very dark brown with black streaks. This wood species is listed as endangered due to a population reduction of over 50% in the past three generations, caused by a decline in its natural range and exploitation.
