This net, Incendiary, is one in a million. The stabilized California Buckeye Burl handle has everything going for it including bi-colorization, heavy Burl patterning, and a unique pattern resembling licking flames of fire. Where there were natural inclusions, I inlaid brass. The unique hoop contains Curly Maple, Wenge, & salvaged Genuine Mahogany. The two thin layers of curly Maple are only .019" thick! This is a challenge to glue up, but one worthy of the results. A hand-pressed-in brass ferrule lines the lanyard hole, and the net handle is laminated with super strong Wenge.
