Our March 2019 batch of limited editions is a re-release of our most popular limited edition Alpha Series hooks so far, PLUS one very special new wood - Thuya Burl.
Thuya Burl is our prize of the March 2019 limited edition batch. This Moroccan beauty is our first ever burled wood and features gorgeous cinnamon to amber coloring with dark spotting and 'eyes'.
The Thuya tree is a member of the cedar family and this wood has been sustainably harvested from the root and trunk burls. The ancient greeks used to extract Thuya oil for ceremonial incense.
Burled wood has a more delicate internal structure than non-burled wood, so sizes below 6.0mm have been excluded from this batch of Thuya.
Never before released
