Cocobolo is a valuable timber of commerce that has been in use in this country, particularly for handles of cutlery, for more than fifty years. It is produced by certain species of Dalbergia indigenous to Central America and southwestern Mexico. The present commercial sources are Panama, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua.
