Is this pernambuco?

Recommended Posts

I suspect that many experts decide on whether or not it is pernambuco or merely brazil wood by the general quality of the bow - if it is a good bow, it is pernambuco. If not, it is brazil wood or "fruitwood".

I have a very pale L Morizot bow, very thick, and a very dark (almost black) slender L Panormo bow. They are both pernambuco, according to the experts.

Not really 

Pernambuco is distinguished by the nature of the grain ... and the absence of mineral lines we see in other woods like abeille and amourette
