These three exotic hardwoods, long traditional for making fifes, are all part of the genus Dalbergia, the "true rosewoods". International regulations (CITES) now ban the import of of any species of the true rosewood genus as lumber. For more details, please go to Exotic Hardwood Restrictions. We have a small supply of Grenadilla, Honduran Rosewood, and Cocobolo that predates the updated CITES regulations, which we can continue to use for making fifes. Any fifes listed in our store are either made from this in-house lumber or were made from lumber that was imported pre-CITES.
