Our Koa Wood Compact Mirror is a must have accessory.
Koa wood is a magnificent and rare natural resource For woodworkers, koa is often considered the wood of kings because of it’s spectacular beauty. Hawaiian Curly koa has a premium price for several reasons: First, it is endemic to Hawaii; it doesn’t grow anywhere else in the world. Secondly, the only koa that can be harvested are the dead or decaying trees on public lands. Plantation koa is in its early stages of development and isn’t much of a factor at this time. And cutting live koa trees on private lands is looked upon as a sin. Illegal cutting occurs sporadically, but anyone found buying or dealing with the “koa black market” faces serious legal issues if they are caught.
