English Ash ?? (Fraxinus Excelsior)
Over the last 10-15 years English ash has been less commonly used in cue manufacture due to increased felling laws and the demand swaying towards the more straight grained american ash. English ash has a slightly darker colour and is slightly heavier and denser when compared with North American ash.
Like American ash, English ash has an open grain which is what gives the visible chevrons to the shaft.
