Kind of like wood from Vietnam ... everything is called “Nha Trang” to outsiders
Let’s work on that!
outside country i don't know, however here at least i never seen wild vietnam all cultivated and people sell it as wild same as Hindi"sigh how i wish we can find some wild hindi chips" zz
I think most shops don’t have much wild wood in Vietnam. At least not that they show. Doesn’t mean it’s not there, though. Seems the material that does still come out of the jungles usually doesn’t make it to the shops.
can definitely be found outside of Vietnam, at ever increasing prices
The best old stuff is usually in the hands of collectors ... and it’s hard to get them to loosen their grip Here’s an example of some that I can’t get that fist to let go of for me just yet ...
Such a beauty
bro show me some wild hindis, i need to have cure for my eyes haha
2 regions I've never even seen offered as wild sinking grade are Indian and Thai oud - I see lots of cultivated ones though!
Will take some photos for ya soon
Well ... there’s a reason
Thailand they’ve been picking over for centuries. Not much coming out of their jungles due to over harvesting.
India still has a fair amount of wild wood, but due to the unique government / Gulf Company control - most of the good stuff ends up with brokers and goes directly to the big companies. Not much of it trickles down to us.
And when it doooooes ... I get offered lots every so often - but generally gotta buy 1 or 3 or 5kg at a time - and the price ain’t cheap. Some of the woods I’ve seen would buy a house most places in the world. Or a whole village
What I DO have ... is a nice photo of fresh Pita from the new shawarma place that opened 2 weeks ago that I mentioned. Just swung by. It was hyuuuuuuge!
I do have a few wild Hindi lots on hand. I get some photos for ya soon.
I have a little bit of wild Thai, as well. Doesn’t look impressive - but the scent on an electric is
Working on getting some more. Part of the challenge is when it DOES pop up - it’s usually sold by the time I even get the message from my resources I literally just missed some the other day that kinda got my panties in a bunch
The good news, is .... LOTS of other unique stuff I’ve got here on hand.
Spent part of my afternoon working on this ...
those are nice brother, thai? education plz
We all dream of plantation wood catching up to wild stock. This is one of two batches I’ve got on hand of some drilled Hindi that is almost solid resin. Single tree, old old plantation. Smells like a fantastic cup of English Breakfast, leathery and tea-like - with hints of dark berries. Spectacular stuff.
I’ll try to snap some shots of the wild materials that I have on hand tomorrow.
Honestly - this batch and the other like it from the same old plantation is a fantastic value. Black, resin dense, and incredibly aromatic at room temp.
The wood I was slicing - Bunyu Island.
Old material. These are the ends cut from pieces that were used to make pendants and small beads.
Really nice smelling stuff.
those looks nice brother, ones we have here no where near this grade ;o its mostly white wood with few resin even though it looks great from outside on burner its quite um..? not sure what to say
Where’s home that you’re seeing so much white wood, locally?
im from kuwait, before this covid stuff happen i used to be almost daily in Mubarkia market it have lots of stuff but most of the agarwood shops also there in many complexs etc and i know friend with shop and he bring most of his wood from india and rest from indonesia so yea i pretty much seen a lot and i have pics of some wood i toke pics for from some collector shop he have in home some awesome stuff but not in shop
Those two sets back in Feb
This is the bangledeshi right?
Smells like tarakan based on proximity? Just a guess?
This looks similar to the sinking tarakan from Dr i too. Curious what the per gram price might be?
