After years of turning whip handles, I decided to try my hand at making exotic wood billy clubs. I turn these clubs from blanks of a South American exotic wood called Argentine Lignum Vitae (Bulnesia sarmientoi), also known as Vera wood. This wood is aromatic and very dense. It’s now used as a substitute for true lignum vitae (Guaiacum officinale) which is endangered from over-harvesting.
The properties of the wood make it a great choice for crafting billy clubs. Whether using it to “thump” a tire to check for air pressure, knocking out a large saltwater fish, or for getting out of a sticky situation; Argentine lignum vitae will not disappoint.
Specs, though each piece is unique and could vary slightly:
- 12″ – 24″ lengths available.
- Weighs 12.5 ounces or more depending on length.
- 1.25 inch diameter at the business end.
- 6.5 inch handle, 4 inch hand grip.
- Hand grip 1″ in diameter at widest part.
- Paracord lanyard.
- Makes a nice club for sport fishing.
- Great for the coming Zombie Apocalypse!
More facts about Argentine lignum vitae:
- It has a specific gravity of 1.10, which means it will actually sink in water.
- It has a unique smell that is very pleasant and oils from the wood are sometimes extracted to make perfumes.
