Katalox - The Perfect Hardwood for Pool Cues
Looking for high-quality hardwood for your next pool cue? Look no further than Katalox, also known as Swartzia Cubensis. Pool cue makers prize this rare and beautiful wood for its exceptional durability, density, and unique aesthetic qualities.
Superior Durability and Hardness
Katalox is known for its incredible durability and hardness, making it a popular choice for pool cue shafts and butts. With a Janka hardness rating of 3,760 pounds, Katalox is one of the hardest woods available on the market. This means that it can withstand heavy use and abuse, making it an ideal material for pool cues that will last for years to come.
In addition to its exceptional durability, Katalox is also prized for its strikingly beautiful appearance. Its rich, dark color ranges from deep purple to almost black, with occasional streaks of reddish-brown. This unique coloration gives Katalox an eye-catching appearance that sets it apart from other exotic hardwoods.
Precision and Accuracy
When it comes to pool cues, precision and accuracy are crucial. Katalox's consistent density and hardness make it an ideal choice for cue makers who want to ensure that their cues deliver exceptional performance. The wood's tight grain structure also helps to reduce deflection, allowing for more accurate shots and better overall control.
Katalox is a sustainable choice for pool cue makers and enthusiasts. The wood is harvested from responsibly managed forests, ensuring that the ecological impact is minimized. Additionally, Katalox is naturally resistant to decay and insect damage, eliminating the need for chemical treatments that can harm the environment.
Katalox - swartzia Cubenis
This very hard, dense, heavy, Central/Latin American wood has a generally dark purple and brown heartwood that can show considerable color variation. Katalox can be quite attractive and it takes a high natural polish and sometimes has interlocked grain that can create an attractive curl in the figure. Finishing agents will turn darker pieces almost black, after which it can be difficult to distinguish from partridgewood due to the similar wenge-like, but very tight, grain pattern. Katalox is ideal for an Ebony substitute in stringed instruments and is nearly as dense as Ebony.
