Sunuke is from a Japanese tree called 'Isu-no Ki' that is grown in Miyazaki Prefecture, Southern Kyushu Island, Japan. Sunuke is the center core of the tree, when the surrounding has rotten and decayed. It is much rarer than the others, and therefore more expensive. It is very hard and strong, and in Miyazaki, there is a legend that says this 'Sunuke' purifies illness, and give luck. It is rich in color, impact resisting, and is heavier because of its density, and will last for a long period of time.
