Lignum Vitae, Ash, Walnut Key of A Native American Style Flute
Native Style flute hand crafted and line bored from a solid piece of exotic Lignum Vitae meaning "wood of life". This is a very hard, tropical wood that has a unique greenish color which gets richer with exposure to light. It is a very hard, dense exotic wood that processes a floral scent that lasts and lasts. This flute is a total sensory treat to view, hold and smell.
This beautiful flute has a mouthpiece of curly ash, with a walnut beauty ring between it and the lignum. The foot end features a knurled carved band. The classic style bird/block is fashioned from walnut with a curly ash center, on an inlaid nest of walnut. It is secured with a supple tan lace of deer hide. It features my hand-burned "morning star" below the nest, with an inlaid abalone cabochon.
This flute is loud and clear with a vibrant tone, great action, and is a wonderful performer. It has an overall length of 18-1/4" with a 3/4" bore and features a very comfortable hand turned, nipple style mouthpiece.
All of my flutes are currently provided with a hand sewn fleece draw string bag for protection.
