Elie Bleu Natural Wood 50 Cigar Humidor
Part of the reason why humidors are so highly prized is the rarity of the timber needed to create a reliable humidor. Only a few woods are air-tight, Insect proof and resistant to warping whn experiencing dramatic changes in humidity. On top of all of this the wood used in a humidor needs to be craftable to create a stunning finish. There are few woods out there that have all of these characteristics.
The Elie Bleu Natural Wood collection displays the supreme beauty and functionality of humidor timber:
Bubinga – is a hardwood from equatorial Africa. The grain is straight and interlocked with a colour ranging from pinkish red to a darker redish brown. Apart from the quirky name, this wood is most commonly known for being resistant to termite attack!
Macassar Ebony – has a dramatic striped appearance that often leads people to mistake it for Zebrawood. The grain is uniform in texture with a natural luster. Macassar is dense and therefore notoriously difficult to work, often blunting tools and splitting during the drying process.
Mahogany – Mahogany wood is famous for being a luxury wood. Intricate patterns are often encarved into the wood due to its fantastic workability. mahogany is equally well known for its superb sustainability. Some renaissance era mahogany doors are still in use today!
Santos Rosewood – This wood is most commonly used for it’s beautiful violet appearance as opposed to it’s durability. Rosewood has a characteristic scent that is unlike anything else, many can identify Rosewood simply by the pleasant aroma!
Walnut – a true British wood, notorious for being easy to work. The heartwood can range from a pale brown to dark chocolate in colour. In terms of durability, the wood provides moderate resistance to decay.
