Check out the three veneers below the brown wood--in the picture of the handle oriented vertically. If you zoom in, you can see that the black veneer bled into the green veneer. It may look fine at normal viewing distances, but I would not be happy about that. Sorry to point out a flaw.The cue was made by Tom Coker.
Since nobody mentioned it I will.
The “Black” wood is African black wood, which is much more expensive than ebony and much more dense(heavy).
Ebony makes for a better hitting cue imo, but for inlays or butt sleeves or prongs African black wood has that deep pure black look(most of the time).
My Black Boars have that. I have a couple SW’s that are ebony that look like African black wood.
Ask the cue makers, they know more than me. But it’s normal for ebony to have some brown streaks in it.
