Utile Hardwood

Latin Name: Entandrophragma Utile

Colour fairly uniform reddish or purplish brown. Grain is interlocked and rather irregular. The stripe figure of square sawn is less marked than in Sapele and the texture more open owing to the larger size of the pores. Strength is comparable to European Beech.

Good stocks of Utile are now available.
