Differences between Main Wood Types We Offer: Part 1

Posted by

Our most common wood type we use for a handful of design styles, is Walnut. The wide range of wood grains can make for a very unique bow tie with a very convenient price tag. Known for it’s strength and durability, it’s sure to age well for generations to come. ("Winston" bow tie pictured above--find it here)

Another frequent wood type we use is a hardwood called White Oak. This very durable species has a trademark wood grain pattern with small rays on the slightly yellow-tinted base. It’s known for it’s density, strength, resiliency and relatively low chance of splintering if broken by impact. ("Earl" bow tie pictured above--find it here)

Wenge, a very dark colored wood, is a popular choice for being who like the Ebony look, but don’t want to pay the higher price for the real thing. It’s distinct striations give it both a brown and black appearance. ("Carl" bow tie pictured above--find it here)

The interlocked grain of the Sapele wood, often times appears wavy and has a fine uniform texture. With a reddish brown color and noticeable luster, it’s natural characteristics make for a consistently perfect engraving every time. ("Sapele Skyline" pictured above--find it here)

Padauk has a bright orange-red color with typically straight wood grain. Also a good candidate for engravings, this wood type is a perfect choice for the guy who isn’t afraid to wear a natural conversation starter wherever they go. ("Harold" bow tie pictured above--find it here)

Maple, on the other hand, is a creamy white hardwood. Known for it’s affordability and durability, it’s a great choice for a consistently clean look. It can take a rough beating and look great for years. One of the best options for engravings, it makes a great Skyline or Custom-etched bow tie. ("Emery" bow tie pictured above--find it here)

Peruvian Walnut’s deep chocolate brown color and soft texture are what sets it apart from all the rest. It’s straight and subtle grain is enhanced by the natural luster this wood type is known for. ("Cleveland" bow tie pictured above--find it here)

Canary, a clear Two Guys favorite, has a striking golden color within it's variations of wood grain. Some pieces can be almost rainbow colored—with dark red streaks, along with the natural orange, yellow, and brown hues. Whether you wear it day-time with a nice button down or at an evening event with a trim blazer, this wood type is versatile to be a eye-catcher for both.
