Hornbeam wood  has a beautiful white-gray shade, similar to ivory, with virtually no distinct fibers, such as ash or white acacia. This wood is a valuable species with a very high density. For its properties, it is also called the "iron" tree. 

*The brown and black tsuba is treated with a special multilayer brown and black impregnation and oil.
