Folding knife in Bocote (Mexican Rosewood)

We are pleased to offer a new type of wood for our folding knives: the Bocote or Mexican Rosewood.

This wood native to Mexico (Cordia Eleagnoides) comes from a tree that may exceed 30 meters but the widths of boards are generally reduced. The color of the wood varies from light brown to reddish brown. Bocote presents a challenging aspect with marked mottling.

This wood species is rare and difficult to obtain, so do not wait to order from our online sales site.

We offer different knives in bocote : Le 5 Coqs knife, the Pocket knife and the Sperone knife.
