Katalox is an exotic wood that is native to Central America. It has exceptional strength properties, and is among the very stiffest and strongest woods available worldwide. Its dark color makes it a popular substitute for ebony and the wood is sometimes called Mexican Royal Ebony, though it is not a true ebony.
