About this Chateau Laguiole Snakewood
Handle Material: Snake wood aka Amourette ( Brosimum guianense). Snakewood is an incredibly beautiful wood which originates mostly in Brazil's Suriname, valley.The part sold as snake wood is really the heartwood of the larger tree. This wood is usually felled with axes and carried on the backs of natives over streams and through snake infested jungle areas. Each tree felled is monitored and the government has developed a strict permit process to control harvesting. The name was inspired by the snakeskin-like markings that decorate this exotic wood. Initially deep red in color, snake wood changes color upon being exposed to air, which makes the wood eventually turn reddish brown; as you see it today.
