Cocobolo comes from Central America and grows along the Pacific Coast of Mexico to Panama. It belongs to the rosewood genus and it is the endemic specie with the highest fat content. Only the heartwood is used, and it ranges from, freshly cuted, dark-orange to deep red. Cocobolo is very difficult to split, but still easy to work with. It is diffuse and has a slightly wavy grain. Cocobolo darkens over time and under the influence of UV light. It is among other things used for tool handles and knife handles, musical instruments (woodwind instruments) but also sticks and brushes. It is also largely used in sculpture and carving.
