Default Wood I.D.

Does anybody have an idea about what type of wood this might be?

Thanks!

I think the grain/color kind of looks like kingwood, but I am not an expert...

The ferrule looks Pakistani to me...perhaps one of the special woods they use.

The grain on your set was probably filled with a finish and then it appears they put black shoe polish or some kind of black finish over it. That is why it looks smoother.
